    Is beach is in the South of the island of Santa Catarina. It's beautiful, there are no residents. Only visitors. You have to go for a trail that is a bit tiring, but the, coupon site. Take your snack, water and s. It will be an unforgettable day.

    Great trail to do, going from 10 to 15 km round trip, has plans, 2 beaches and paths a lot of ascent, at the end there's a hill that tourists take pictures of rocks up there, if you are an adult and you're not afraid of heights, I recommend climbing, are wonderful pictures. The way up is not very easy and in some cases can be even dangerous, is not an ideal place to take kids, accidents can happen. For those with fear of heights, can give some discomfort but no big deal.

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.
