Observation Deck
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. Using our world travel planner, Florianopolis attractions like Morro da Lagoa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
