“The best place in Florianopolis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2012

Ilha do campeche is the most beautiful place in Florianopolis. White dand beaches, and blue ocean... you feel in a paradise island. Just be aware of food facilities because there is only two restaurants at the beach so if you are in a budget or have special food requirments, please take your own. Definitly you cna not come to Florianopolis and not vist Campeche Island.

“Expensive but wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

This is not a cheap and easy place. You have to pay, you have to get there by boat and you have to get back at the scheduled time (of your boat).

But what a wonderful place! The seawater is calm and cold and its color is wonderful.

Getting there / prices:
Best option might be from Praia da Armação. Ride takes 40 min, costs R$ 40 (Mar/12) and you stay ~4 hours at the Island. Regular boats departure from Ilha da Campanha, at the end of Praia da Armação.

You can get there also from Praia do Campeche (more expensive and irregular schedule) and Barra da Lagoa (longer trip).

What to do there:
As soon as you arrive at the island, monitors will come to you to tell you about what to do there. You're not allowed to hike by your own.

You can just enjoy the beach or rent snorkels or do some guided hiking.

Prices for hiking were R$5-15, depending on the trail. There are rock paintings all over the island and almost every guided hike will pass by some of them.

There are 2 restaurants and the prices are obviously high (but still not as high as Jurerê Internacional). But you can bring your own drink and food (and take the trash back with you, of course).
