Personal favorite spot in Florianopolis. Don't forget to climb the hill once you reach the beach. From there you get the best view on the island! Go when it is clear sky. The trial there (either from Pantano do Sul or Matadeiro beach) might be challenging. You need enough time, water and insect repellent (mosquitoes).

The trail to get to Lagoinha starts off in a relatively okay marked trail post up the street from the surf bar...now closed and being renovated it seems. If you cannot find the trail as any local for the "trilha", pronounced treel-ya. This hike pretty much is a hike up through and down a dried stream path, full of rocks,... More

A really relaxing place with beautiful warm, still water. Great for a swim, paddle board or just to get your ankles wet.

I did the hiking from Matadeiro, it is a little bit longer but trully beautifull, it took me arround 2h10, the return was faster, about 1h40. To go and return at the same day from Matadeiro it is exaustive. I do recomend spend the night camping, because there is a lot to see and do. The place is magic! -... More

This is one of the most beautiful of the many beautiful beached of Florianopolis. The hike there is half of the fun, it's rather easy, just be sure to take enough water with you as there are no sources on the way. I recommend starting in Armacao, you cross the surf beach Matadeiros, and then you start the hike. It's... More

This a great half day activity... hike from Pantano do Sul over to Lagoinha do Leste and back. It shouldn't be taken lightly.. wear trainers, take sunscreen, insect repellent, camera and a minimum of 1 litre water per person, but try to otherwise travel light. There is plenty of uphill and downhill scrambling so it's handy to have your hands... More

We planned this hike and have hiking boots and its a pretty good hike around the point of the island. For your information; please don't wear flip flops on this hike. Wear some good clothing the Mosquitos where a bit viscous & take plenty of water, maybe 2ltr per person. We saw people trying to do it in bikinis and... More

If you do the trail, be aware that this is not a place to go with childrens, avoid it if so, some places are really dangerous to walk, 3kms are going up, a lot of mud on the road and naked wet stones, and is long walk to reach the beach, once there the beach is nice, but no shadow... More

It's a very little and not-so-famous beach in the northern side of the island, but it's astonishingly beautiful and very calm. Not your sunset-party agitated beach. More of a chill-out one. The sea is calm, little or none waves, very large sand line and very beautiful rocks on the background. Not many stores/restaurantes available, but simplicity is the key here.
