Visit Florianópolis: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Florianópolis

Hike to Lagoinha do Leste Beach
Lagoinha do Leste is one of those beaches where the reward more than justifies the effort. To get there, you need to hike for a couple of hours along the coastline. Along the way you’ll get postcard-worthy views and once there, you can swim in a freshwater lagoon fringed with white sands. Make sure you take decent walking shoes, some water and a packed lunch.
Florianopolis Historic Centre
Florianopolis’ Old Town is well worth a wander. It’s packed full of charming old buildings from colonial times, painted in vivid colours. Keep an eye out for the Catedral Metropolitana, decked out in dazzling custard and white hues. This is a place where you really need to take your camera with you.

Exceptional
The Portuguese colonial architecture is excellent. Great restaurants and city life. One of the better cities in Brazil and much more modern than most. The residents are generally better dressed and cared for than in most BraIlian cities also.

A good variety of beaches on the island -- tranquil, bucolic, touristy, calm sea, big waves, small waves for easy surfing or children to jump up and down in, also some beautiful villages like Santo Antonio de Lisboa, the fort of Sao José da Ponta Grossa.
