Morro da Lagoa, Florianopolis
(4.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Hill which gives full view to the Conceição lagoon and coastal beaches. Great view, ideal for photos and appreciation.

  • The Mirante do Morro da Lagoa has the best view of Lagoa da Conceição and dunes of Joaquina is a quick break but that is very worthwhile and yields beautiful photos.

  • Thrilling descent with different points to stop and viewpoints that allow us to fantastic views, especially at night
