“Small fisherman's village!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Old village in the south of Santa Catarina Island. A big influence of the azorean colonization.
Small and charming church in the village square and very nice fish and seafood restaurants.

“Small and cozy island town with great restaurants!”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

Ribeirao da Ilha is one of those villages which you see on photos in travel magazines or post cards. It's a beautiful, portuguese style, small village in the south west of the island, which is totally different from all the other parts of Florianopolis. The small houses, cobble stone streets, fishermen and the amazing restaurants make this a little treasure on the big Santa Catarina Island.

Pick a morning or afternoon and ride by care or bus to the town, bot very easy! And make sure to include lunch hour in your visit to try the oysters for which Ribeirao da Ilha is famous in Brazil. Don't be shy and try some special oysters with melted cheese or ginger for example. Make sure to bring your camera to take some beautifull photos of the town and of your lunch!
