Costa da Lagoa, Florianopolis

(4.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
The small village of Costa da Lagoa, on Lagoa da Conceição, can only be reached by boat or by winding forest trails. The village's remoteness and simplicity give it the feeling of a lost civilisation. Private speed boats can be rented, but the simplest (and cheapest) mode of transport is to use the same taxi-boat as the villagers do. Along the way you can stop off at one of the many waterfront restaurants with their own jetties. At the village itself, you can explore the forest trails, visit the tiny church, cool off at the waterfall, or simply talk to the friendly locals. Just make sure you don't miss the last boat back to the mainland.

  • The route of the Lake is paved and has beautiful views. can go is by the road making a tour perfect surrounding the island. Attention. Set is well to the height of shopping iguatemi, that the signaling towards the Lake of the concession, is a little confusing

  • A place to linger, to sit on the floor be charmed with the view. You can also make boat ride around the pond, diving, visiting Islands etc.

  • In Florianopolis be sure to visit the Costa da Lagoa. Has great restaurants where children enjoy a hot bath in the pond and the adults a cold beer. The food is great. Access is by boat
