Morro da Lagoa, Florianopolis

4.7
There is no better place to grasp the geographical layout of Florianópolis than from the lookout on Morro da Lagoa, where you have a spectacular panoramic view of Lagoa da Conceição, the dunes of Praia da Joaquina and Praia Mole, Barra da Lagoa, and beyond. The lookout is located at the side of the winding road that leads to the lagoon. From this vantage point, you can fully appreciate the size and beauty of the island. A small bust of Manuel de Meneses, a journalist, politician, and businessman who developed and promoted tourism in the area, stands guard over the view.

  • The high point is the view from Lagoa da Conceição in the top of the Hill, obligatory stop in the mirante, who could be better maintained to receive visitors. The season is usually congested.

  • It is worth climbing the lookout just to look and take some pictures, the place is too beautiful, sensational and have a panoramic view of the Conceição lagoon and the ocean.

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.
