Exactly opposite Praia do Campeche sits Campeche Island, and the waves created as the sea pushes past that landmass attract surfers form all over the world. All kinds of beach sports--, from bodyboarding and kayaking, to beach volleyball and soccer--are practiced at Praia do Campeche although there is plenty of space for those who prefer their beach trips to be a little more relaxing. The beach is so long, in fact, that locals claim French writer Antoine de St. Exupéry used to land his plane here in the thirties.

    Immense beach that extends from the coastline on the South to the Joaquina. Campeche Island ahead with boats make the crossing in the morning can be a good program.

    This still preserved South Beach of the island is one of the closest to the Centre of Florianopolis, for those who enjoy a beach with waves and good structure is a good thing on the island. See also the prainha of Riozinho next, is the current point of Floripa.

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.
