Park Galheta

In the early '80s, the movement for environmental conservation has begun to challenge the speculation that would harm the natural beauty of the larger island of Santa Catarina. The persistent work of naturalists, environmentalists and politicians, aware of the need to preserve one of the biggest tourist attractions in Florianopolis, led to the creation of the Municipal Park Galheta by Law 3455/90, passed by Decree 698/94. This law states that all of the Park is 149.30 acres of permanent conservation, with an express prohibition of any type of construction, land subdivision, camping, hunting of animals and destruction of vegetation, entry of domestic animals, and motor vehicle access .

Naturism / Nudism

The Naturism, ancient practice this beach, is favored by the Friends of the Cruet - AGAL, ​​nonprofit organization that fights for its official and full preservation of the park.

The movement is characterized by the total acceptance of the body as well, nothing wrong or shameful, thus assuming the nudity in appropriate places in a social context of mutual respect. The commitment to the preservation of nature is also part of the movement, which believes it is perfectly consistent with this view and lifestyle

Naturists have been highlighted over the years as guardians of the park, collecting garbage, fight not only against seizures and undue degradation of fauna, flora and soil, but also recovering the vegetation by planting trees. Thanks to the persistent work and support of Councilman Márcio de Souza and Mr Fernando Gabeira, naturism was formalized in Galheta, by unanimous vote of the City of Florianopolis, through Law No. 195/97 CMF, with admission to practice only nudist beach, without a mandatory nature.

Archaeological Sites

The Galheta has archaeological sites with rock inscriptions, lithic workshops, stone tools and sharpeners, markers of the presence of people in this area for about 6000 years.
