Joaquina in Florianópolis is an exposed sandbar break that is usually a safe bet. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Ideal winds are from the northwest with some shelter here from northeast winds. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The sandbar breaks consists of lefts. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take care of the strong rips here.
