This is the most picturesque village from the Azores on the island. There are some beautifully coloured houses there. The church is really worth seeing as well. The beach is very small but there are no waves as it is on the west coast. There are also many great restaurants and cafes. This is a place for oysters.

We came through Ribeirao da Ilha and I thought it was such a cute, old town! Lots of colourful buildings. Nothing in particular to do here that I am aware of but I like to go through little historical towns. I believe we ate at a restaurant here on the shore, yummy seafood!

What I like about this is that it is a break from just the beaches at Floripa. The colonial houses are really cute and worthwhile to stop by (and take some ) pictures if you are around the area.

Great, older traditional fishing village that has added many tourist type attractions for visitors. Fishing, jet-skis, boating, windsurfing, are all available. Restaurants of all types available for all budgets.

Umas e Ostras is a place with the best oysters in the world. Fantastic view of the Baía Sul. Walking along the beach is a pleasure.

Old village in the south of Santa Catarina Island. A big influence of the azorean colonization. Small and charming church in the village square and very nice fish and seafood restaurants.

Ribeirao da Ilha is one of those villages which you see on photos in travel magazines or post cards. It's a beautiful, portuguese style, small village in the south west of the island, which is totally different from all the other parts of Florianopolis. The small houses, cobble stone streets, fishermen and the amazing restaurants make this a little treasure... More
