Florianópolis Santa Catarina Island

Florianopolis, Florianopolis for short, is the capital of the State of Santa Catarinaand part of it is located on the island of Santa Catarina, an island large enough to offer a beach for every day of the month (the other part is on the continent, joined by a bridge).


So, there’s plenty of fun. And the best of both worlds: a capital with an air of inner city, good restaurants and hotels, beautiful beaches etc. They say the restaurants around the Lagoa da Conceição offer great seafood. For lovers of the outdoors, she also offers several options, such as surfing, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, cycling, climbing and trekking, among others. The Lagoa da Conceição is browsable and the whole area is rich in water sports.
