Canasvieiras is a neighbourhood and beach located in southern Brazil, approximately convert|27|km|mi|0 north-east of the city of Florianópolis on the northern part of Santa Catarina island. Nearby beaches include Jurerê and Cachoeira do Bom Jesus.

Some theories exist as to the origin of the name—one account suggests it is due to a certain Mr Vieira who owned a sugar cane plantation in the town, but historically it is more likely that it was named for a variety of cane cultivated in the region, known in Portuguese as "cana-viera". A 1786 map identifies the beach as "Praia Cana Vieiras".

During the summer Canasvieiras is popular with tourists, especially those from Argentina but also those from Chile and Uruguay, because of the calm seas in the area and the nightlife. A variety of accommodation, bathhouses and shops (many of which have bilingual attendants) exist in the area, as well as a police station and a health clinic.
