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

I love this beach. Not only for the beach itself, but the surroundings, which emanates history and simplicity. I lived there for almost 2 years and I miss it, even though I occasionally go to my old home and stay there for a few days, great to recover the energy. Looks like a remote place, very friendly to families and... More

Went to restaurant Ostradum on Ribeirao da Ilha. The area is very cozy, lot's of small houses, very different style from what else you'll see on the Island of Florianopolis.

Don't miss a meal at Ostradamous, a top-quality restaurant in anyone's book. The town is very charming, with colored houses and a beautiful old church (currently undergoing restoration). Definitely worth a visit if you are an oyster-lover, as this is the heart of the oyster producing region.

A gorgeous little village at the southern end of the Ilha de Santa Catarina. Beautiful little Azorean fishermen's cottages, gentle waves lapping on the (small) beach, restaurants along the water's edge. A quiet place that feels a world away from the city, when it's actually only a few kilometres from the airport and maybe half an hour from the city... More
