It is like a little town with 2 nice beaches. There are shops , markets and restaurants within walking distance. Beaches are nice but get very busy on high season and wih lots of families and kids. For seeing other beaches you need to move around the island.

Lively little village close to the turtle project - the perfect place to drink a beer on the beach and wait for the sun to set. The sea is a little wilder here and the beach not quite as perfect, but it is all the better for it.

Barra da Lagoa is a place where you can find good food, nice people too, some attractions at night, but it's not a place for swimming; better to take a look at a work of ''rendeiras'', a portuguese tradition...

We went here for the weekend to escape from work. We found it nice and a good place to escape for the weekend. The hostels were full when we were making the booking because of the SUP competition held this weekend. So far, i can say that this is a good beach to relax, surf (beginners), dine and drink.

This is a nice town, where you not only have a nice beach, a nice small lagune with nice views, but also nice authentic shops to buy souvenirs or hammocks.

Brilliant spot. Great to do SUP on the river and lake, and then go up and hike over the top of the hill.. Fantastic views, great location, great way to get a really good experience of the natural beauty of the island.

Loved visiting this town during my stay. Plenty of good places to eat, locals to meet, and close to Praia Mocambique.

I was hosted in Barra da Lagoa and its a very calm neighborhood of Florianópolis. You can find a lot of good and cheap restaurants, the beach is safe and there are a many houses for rental. Its a very good place to practice sports like jogging and stand up paddle. The ocean at this part of the island is... More
