Costa da Lagoa, Florianopolis
(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ 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.

  • Costa da Lagoa is a typical Azorean community, of lace-makers, craftsmen and fishermen. To reach the site can make the trail via canto dos Araçás, approximately 7 km, or take a boat in the village of Lagoa da Conceição and proceed to the site, the course lasts approximately 45 minutes. On site there are great restaurants, craft shops and the cachoeira da Costa da Lagoa. Very beautiful place, worth the visit.

  • Visit the shores of Lagoa da Conceição is one of my favorite tours on the island of Santa Catarina. If you want to get out of that rut of beaches (which is nice), is an excellent choice! Many people make the walk up the trail, but most opt for something more tranquil, which is taking a boat, with timetables (in summer the frequency is greater) that will be stopping in various points of the coast, with the most points at the end of the path, where the restaurant, the place where tourists tend to go down. You can take the boat both in centrinho of the pond (more busy and hard to Park) but also out in paragraph 3, in the corner of a quiet place Araçás, where you can arrive by car, through the rua João Henrique Alves (General Road Corner of Arrack). It takes around 30 to 40 minutes boat ride. Recommend going down and try the C Restaurant, located in one of the last points of the coast. It's a little more expensive, but the food is much better than the other. If you came down in the wrong spot, just walk the trail at the back of restaurants that you get there. That way, nearby, is a waterfall that is worth knowing. In summer the restaurant often packed, so try to arrive before noon or have a little patience, and stay tuned to the timetables of the boat, ask in restaurants, so you can plan better. Walk for almost a full day, occupies almost the entire afternoon. Slow down to enjoy the place, not worth the rush.
