“Humanity was here thousands of years ago!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This is one of the obligatory visits for those coming to Florianópolis. Etnographic riches and one of the most beautiful scenaries in Florianópolis. Yo8 can only reach by boat. There boats leaving from Paraia do Campeche and also from the vellage of Barra da lagoa. It is only open in the Summer months.

“A day trip”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

A short sail from "Praia de Armação." The island is beautiful. Some rocks have ancient drawings carved into them. There's also a small sand beach. Bring a jacket for the way back-it gets cold on the water.

“Beautiful Place!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

You can take a boat from Campeche beach. It's a bit nauseating , but OK! The water is clear and you can do some snorkelling. You also can do some trail to see the other side of the island with some archeological things. The food is not good, and you must take some food with you.

“not so spectacular”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

a lot of tourists !!! for this little island ... the beach was dirty and there were many insects (bring your insect repellent). They offer everywhere snorkel equipment and tours but I wonder what you can see as there is no reef to snorkel...
waist of time and money
