You love to be in nature? If so, go and enjoy. You have many steps up in a trail between trees and stones, sometimes difficult, till the beautiful scene. But believe, you won’t regret. Wonderful nature!!!

I bet you won’t miss the chance of taking a photo at Lagoinha. It was probably The best hike I did in Floripa with a group of friends. There are also good restaurants nearby where you can get sth to eat after a long hike

Lagoinha do Leste is one of the smallest and beautiful beaches in the south of Florianopolis island. It is still a natural paradise, where the contrast of the green from Mata Atlântica Rainforest and the blue of sea play the biggest role. Go and enjoy!

It's not a long beach but it's got pretty good stretch. You should bring your own pareo or towel to sit on the beach coz it's quite expensive to rent a beach chair and umbrella. You can get to this beach by bus from nearby...More
