Go only if you really know that the waves are pumping, cause you gonna spend a lot of gas and time to reach the brach. The bigger the swell is, the challenging and the perfect it gets.
People go to Naufragados to camp and/or to enjoy this quiet beach. So take your garbage back. Keep it clean and virgin, so you can have it for a long time.
This beach is located at the extremly south of Florianópolis, so you have to go by the West Side of the island (region without waves) also is protected by a hill. If you want to surf there, you'd better expect a 6ft south swell with north quadrant wind. And make sure you are in absolute perfect phisical conditions. Besides walking 40 minutos to get there, when you get there you'll find this is the most heavy wave of the island. An amazing righthanerd pumping beside the rocks towards the beach. Tubes, tubes and more tubes. incredible nature around. If you have, take 2 surfboards. So you won't need to go back home earlier and sad if you miss one. The wave is really strong and the bottom is very hollow.
This is "the last beach" of the island. So drive all the way heading south until you get the village called Caieira da barra do Sul. Park your car and take an easy 40 minutes walk through and amazing sighty trail.
