I fully recommend a visit to Capeche Island if you spend a few days in Florianopolis. The island is located just a short boat ride off the coast of Campeche beach and has by far the most stunning beach (with calm, crystal clear water) in the region. An absolute tropical paradise.
There are several ways to get there. We took a small rubber boat from Campeche beach for 80 R$ a head but there are larger boats leaving from other locations. There is only a limited amount of guests allowed on the island at one time so departure times from the island are fixed. You won't regret spending a day there though (most operators leave the island by 4PM at the latest).
There are lifeguards and rangers on the island who will look after you. You must remain on the beach, unless you join a tour on the hiking trails, where you can see some archeological sites and ancient rock drawings.
There are two restaurants on the island which serve drinks and small meals. (Don't order the coke or other sweet drinks as the bees will eat you alive - it's a nature reserve after all)
