“Canto da Lagoa, simple as paradise should be!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

The island of Santa Catarina has so many good surprises that Costa da Lagoa could be only one more, but it isn't just that, it is a great and beautiful surprise where atmosphere, simplicity and good food complete each other. You reach the place via the boat-buses that leave from under the old bridge that connects the center of vila da Lagoa da Conceição to Avenida das Rendeiras (there is another access, which boat ride is shorter, leaving from the Embarcadouro Fluvial located at the lagoon shore of Parque Florestal). The boat-buses stops have numbers and after stop 15 one starts to see the different family owned restaurants that offer some of the best fish plates on the island. The boat ride itself is an amazing experience with amazing views of the houses, sea birds and the lush vegetation that cover the hills bordering the lagoon. We are fun a a restaurant called "Sabor da Costa" with its tables and chairs under the comfortable shadow of nuttrees and its spaceful wooden deck over the blue and transparent waters of the lagoon. The ride from the bridge terminal to Sabor da Costa takes about 40 minutes. Close by the village there are trails and a water fall that can also be visited before or after your meal. After your great fish or oyster meal be sure to have a delicious "doce" bought from this lady who goes from table to table offering some of the traditional sweets of the island. Not to miss when in Florianopolis.

Thank Dutras

“Great place and small pubs and restaurants nearby”

Great neighborhood with nice places to visit, eat and shop! We definitely recommend the visit. The only inconvenience depending on the time is a place to park but the rest is great.

“A must if in Florianopolis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

I've spent the last three weeks here and feel like i know the island pretty well. You absolutely cannot visit Floripa and not make at least one stop at the Lagoa de Conceicao. It's picturesque with mountains jutting out of a blue ocean, and the streets are dotted with small local restaurants, cafes, and bars along with a smattering of stores including a legit Havaiana flipflop store. (Note: Havaianas are all the rage in Europe and other places. You can buy them in the US at Bloomingdale's for way too much money, or you can buy them here on the cheap...they make EXCELLENT gifts for family/co-workers). You can hire someone to show you how to wind surf, go for a run along the beach paths, take a book and enjoy the relaxing sounds of the water, or party it up at night with your friends. There's something for everyone here. There's also a small flea market on the weekends where you can find all sorts of neat stuff. Take the 320 or 330 buses to get there from the Center of Floripa, or it'll cost you about R30 (approx $15) to get there from the center. If you leave Floripa without swinging by this place, you're wrong!

So much to do and see! This little town has everything, watersports, music, great restaurants. Explore the shops or just relax on the beach and watch the kite surfers. Excellent way to spend a day.
