Florianópolis (Brazil)

Florianópolis Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Beach and party island

Florianópolis is a city in the southern state of Santa Catarina in Brazil. It is largely situated on the Island of Santa Catarina, but a small part of it sits on the continent as well. The place has long been a hit with Argentine tourists who come here for the beaches, lagoons and amazing scenery the island has to offer. Nowadays the island is becoming more and more of a party hot-spot as well, beating out some of the other more established jet-set locations in South America.

Besides partying, naturally the main attraction here are the 40+ odd beaches, which come in both crowded and more secluded varieties. If you want to be more active than laying on the beach, you could go hiking or mountainbiking. Getting to the secluded Lagoinha do Leste beach from the city would take you several hours, for instance. [Review by travelindicator]
