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.

A very nice hike from the town just to the N of the point. Along hillsides with beautiful view out to the ocean. You then come around a point and there is a beautiful bay with a lagoon and creek. One can hike back just from behind the beach, but the "loop" is recommended. At the end of the trail... More

If I had to recommend one of the things we did on our recent 5 day Floripa trip, this would be it. To begin, head down to Pantano do Sul, probably best to drive. There are estacionamentos where you can park for the day for 10 reals right next to the trailhead. The trailhead itself is located a couple blocks... More

Wonderful place to visit from all levels of the Laguna- overview to the tiny towns that border the water. Plan on a day visit. Spent time in little town of San Antonio and was transported back in history. Lovely visit despite the heat and humidity.

Lagoinha do leste is a lovely and almost deserted beach to spend a day. We found it pretty safe to have fun on the waves, because although they were considerably high, the thick sand was flat and firm to step on, besides it was shallow where the waves break. Water is pretty cold, as usual in Florianópolis, but you can... More
