Glorious Beaches for Surfers and Socialites

Once a destination for surfers, Florianopolis now also rides the tourism wave of chic nightclubs and beach parties. Just off the coast of southern Brazil on Santa Catarina Island, Florianopolis features over 40 perfect beaches to choose from.

The island is connected to the industrialized mainland by the Hercilio Luz Bridge. On the island side, Praca XV de Novembro square is just south of the city center. Follow the tree-lined boulevard to get there with its beautiful Catedral Metropolitana.

The northern downtown area features a promenade outlining the historic streets of Beira-Mar-Norte.

The northern beach of Jurere is party central with many nightclubs catering to Brazil’s emerging wealthy class. Further south on the east coast are Joaquina, Campeche and Mole beaches, which have a more traditional surf and youth culture with many oceanfront bars scattered along the shore.

Florianopolis’ Hercilio Luz International Airport services many international destinations during the high tourist season. has a complete range of accommodation options such as hotels in the city center or guesthouses and apartments with pool located near the beach.
