Every place in Florianopolis is very special. The view is unforgettable from everywhere. The sea is so blue in summertime that is like a paradise.

We walked from Armacao to Lagoinha do Leste then on to Pantano do sul. The first walk took about 2 hours and included some challenging climbs. The last section is completely exposed so beware if it is sunny and hot. Make sure you take plenty of water as you'll probably need more than you think. There is a small boteca... More

A tough hike over the hill - 40mins minimum I reckon - but well worth the effort for a beautiful deserted wild beach. There's no shade though! There's a small tree on a rock just to the right of where the trail comes out onto the beach and that's about it. Theres a bar at the far end of the... More

Loved that place! A guided tour can be hired with the guys from Lagoa Boutique Guest House. Better not to go if there was rain one day before, as the soil gets slippery.

That destiny was great, I was there in 2009. I will take you almost 1.5 hs of walking through the jungle to get to the beach, but once you are there. It's simply amazing!

This was a really worth trail, it's not too long and you arrive in an almost desert beach!! Afterwards, you can go to Arante's Bar in Pantano do Sul beach and try "cachaça" and the amazing crawfish.

It's a wonderful beach in Pantano do Sul ( Florianopolis ) where you can get just by foot. It has no houses or bars in the beach and you must take your food and water with you. You should be in shape because it's a long walking on hill ( almost 1 hour each way ) but when you get... More

This was one of my favorite things to do Floripa. Take 2 buses to the hiking trail, a good 2-hour hike to the beach and about an hour back. Beautiful views, peaceful, quiet, and private.

Hard to get there but worth it for its beauty, small size, good restaurants and people. Touring the island? This is a must. Hard to get to in a way so get a map or setup directions properly. It's likely 30 minutes from downtown with no traffic. Also, very safe there too for family and leaving your car there. DON'T... More
