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.

  • There's no way come to Franco and not take a picture to take. The Observatory is relatively small. But it's worth it because the view is breathtaking!

  • There is a beautiful place, parador, to be able to look at both the LAGOA, as also seen way to Barra da Lagoa, in the parador, you have to make small purchases, souvenirs. Before arriving at the parador, on the LAGOA da Conceição, numerous local place before where they worked the randheiras (weavers), that some still persist, where do the typical work of networks of blouses and dresses, typical of Brazil. Today over the lagoon you can rent to do STAND UP, Kayack and others. Beautiful, to sit at sunset and watch the movement of both banks of the Lagoa, since they are forced paths, to go to beaches facing the Atlantic, both North and South

  • If the beaches give life to the city, the Lagoa da Conceição is the very soul of the capital of Santa Catarina. Located in the geographical centre of the island, the lagoon is the meeting point of all the tribes. It is also the place chosen by hippie chics and jet-setters to enjoy coffee and watch the landscape behind the sunglasses. About 15 km in length, it has a Boulevard where shops, restaurants and bars are concentrated with music live from various genres. Crossing the bridge that divides the parties North and South of the lagoon, to the Avenue das Rendeiras, busy road which gives access to the beaches of the East and the big dunes ranging to Joaquina. During the road bordering the pond, see the landscape and you can see people running, practicing kitesurfing, windsurfing, paragliding, surfing on sand and other activities of the Earth, the sky and the sea.
