Lagoa da Conceição is a district located next to a large lagoon of the same name near the center of Florianópolis, capital city of the state of Santa Catarina, located in the south of Brazil.Lagoa da Conceição combines beaches, dunes, hills, and the biggest lagoon on the island.

Most people living around the lagoon choose to move here for a life more connected to the nature, to practice sports, Yoga, to eat healthy. Most people believe in a harmonious life and are very relaxed. The little town is full of vegetarian restaurants, organic food, gyms and spas.

  • Wants stunning landscape? Has pond, hills, beaches ... Want to ride? You can choose between jet-skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up, boats, etc. Want food? The adventure variety is great, with great options. Be sure to go to the corner of the pond in a river bus for lunch! It's worth it!

  • Great hosting. Apartments with air conditioning and all necessary structure: kitchenware and all furnished. Great to save cooking right there. Daily price very account, with capacity for up to 4 people without additional charge per guest. Very quiet and silent. Just around the corner has the main street of the neighborhood, on the edge of the edge of the pond, with numerous options for entertainment, shops and restaurants.

Where to stay in Florianopolis

To get a true taste of the city's culture on your trip to Florianopolis, it's best to stay in the historical center on Santa Catarina Island. There you'll find plenty of accommodations--a significantly better selection than on the mainland--ranging from budget guesthouses and hostels to luxury hotels. Many guests, however, choose to take advantage of the island's charming nature by staying away from the city center, in the lakeside district of Lagoa da Conceição. For easy access to the best surf beaches on the island, stay a couple miles farther away at Mole Beach or Barra da Lagoa.
