The beach is very tasty and worth a visit!

 

Located 25 km from downtown Florianópolis, Armação Beach is a major fishing center on the island as well as one of the most important archaeological sites in the state of Santa Catarina. The Church of St Anne, built in 1772 is the main attraction. It was there that the crew of the whaling harpoon, would confess and attend the mass before the fishing begins. Then the priest would come down to the beach to bless the boats going to the sea. Almost nothing is left from the original church, though it retains many features of the reform made ​​in 1838. Another, conducted in 1948, completely changed the original facade of the building. It receives tourists and surfers all year round. Despite a good amount of waves, is good for swimming.
