Florianopolis: A Lifetime Vacation

Your oceanfront accommodation will ensure that you can check the waves and have the morning first see breeze of the day from your balcony. Just a few steps and you are on a beautiful beach, in front of an uncrowded break waiting for you to surf it. Or walk 5 minutes to the right, and you will be on a vibrant beach, packed with beautiful people offering the real Brazilian way of life: people surfing, kite surfing, playing beach tennis, beach volleyball, or simply hanging out on the beach enjoying the beautiful scenery.

But your day has just begun: explore Florianopolis through the eyes of a local, and have your activity guide take you to one of the other several pristine beaches the island offers, or to other places of your special interest, may be a local soccer game in the city stadium, a samba rehearsal for Carnival or to play the “Capoeira”.

There is much more than just beautiful beaches in the island

Florianópolis BridgeAlthough the day diverse scenery in Florianopolis would already be a very good combination for you to come visit us, the island has much more to offer.

The little charming downtown called Lagoa da Conceição, offers lively bars, shops selling from local handcraft to international brands, a huge variety of restaurants, and world class night clubs.

A walk in the evening at the Lagoa area is a great option to relax having a fresh juice or a Brazilian ‘expresso’ while you do some ‘people watching’.

Later on, we are sure you can gather energy to go to one of the great nightclubs in town. Be ready to dance to your favorite rhythm or to experience the famous “samba”!
