“I call it my second home”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

I love this beach. Not only for the beach itself, but the surroundings, which emanates history and simplicity. I lived there for almost 2 years and I miss it, even though I occasionally go to my old home and stay there for a few days, great to recover the energy.
Looks like a remote place, very friendly to families and kids. Nearby restaurants sell very good seafood at reasonable prices (esp. at low season). Not crowded at all. It just looks like a piece of a small ancient town.

Very worth it.

“Cozy and great restaurants”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

Went to restaurant Ostradum on Ribeirao da Ilha. The area is very cozy, lot's of small houses, very different style from what else you'll see on the Island of Florianopolis.

“Picturesque, and with excellent oysters”
Reviewed 27 November 2012

Don't miss a meal at Ostradamous, a top-quality restaurant in anyone's book. The town is very charming, with colored houses and a beautiful old church (currently undergoing restoration). Definitely worth a visit if you are an oyster-lover, as this is the heart of the oyster producing region.

“Beautiful little village with a real Azorean feel.”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

A gorgeous little village at the southern end of the Ilha de Santa Catarina. Beautiful little Azorean fishermen's cottages, gentle waves lapping on the (small) beach, restaurants along the water's edge. A quiet place that feels a world away from the city, when it's actually only a few kilometres from the airport and maybe half an hour from the city of Florianopolis.
