If you are in Florianopolis you must go to Costa da Lagoa. Food is great, amazing scenery! Take the boat and stop at any restaurant by the Lagoa da Conceição. We loved "Paradise" restaurant.

Get a boat and spend the day. Here you can eat fresh seafood, talk to nice people and admire exuberant nature. At Cabral Restaurant, try Carapeva bait, right from the lagoon. Diving next to the "castle" is really nice. There's also a water fall to refresh after a long walk. Enjoy!

Good seafood restaurants at reasonable prices. You can get threr by taking a bus-boat at Lagoa pier, or hike through the forest by the lake side (aprox. 1,5h easy hike). The best is to go hiking and come back by boat after having lunch at one aof the many restaurants by the lake.

This trail is considered historical of the Brazilian Colonial Period because it keeps its original features like the paving stones, fishing sites, old mansions, Atlantic forest, amazing cliff with wonderful view of the lagoon (Lagoa da Conceição). The whole path is about 2 hours long, long-distance walking on steep slopes, 7230 meters of extension and its all demarcated with signs... More

If you want to visit a place where the time goes slower, go to Costa da Lagoa. Talk to manezinhos (local inhabitants), try a carapeva bait (delicious fish) and use the peculiar transportation to cross the lagoon. I recomend Cabral restaurant with its green roof.

Blue skies, clear waters, easy safe walking paths, family friendly, laid back. Loads of things to see and do, does not need to be pricey with many medium ranged places around.

This is a place to go only by boat to rest, relax and enjoy the view. It is a lovely sight seeing tour by a small typical boat. Cheap tour. It will take you to a place with some native seafood restaurants. There you will try the typical seafood from the region. This is the only spot where tourists and... More

Possibly my favorite spot in the island of Santa Catarina. It's just as if you got it all: a waterfall, great restaurants, nature, a nice trail, history and you can even take the opportunity to take a boat trip.
