Florianopolis Brazil (or Floripa, as the island is affectionately known by locals) is one of the world’s best surf spots and most beautiful locations, blessed with 42 pristine beaches, lush rolling hills, soft white sand dunes and sparkling lagoons. In addition, Floripa offers world-class dining and nightlife, as well as a tremendous array of extreme sports activities to please even the most discerning adventure enthusiast. Last but not least, Floripa offers a wealth of cultural attractions, including traditional Brazilian fairs and markets, Azorean architecture, and historical points of interest such as ancient forts used to defend the island against pirates and invaders. Floripa is as renowned throughout Latin America for its golden beaches as it is for the golden-haired bombshells that abound—Germans, Polish and Italians colonized the South of Brazil, explaining the Giselle Bündchen look-a-like phenomenon that you will see all over the island.
Most consider the ‘crowned jewel’ area of the island to be the region in the center of the east side of the island, in particular the Praia Mole and Lagoa da Conceição areas. Here visitors are enchanted by Floripa’s most stunning and unique natural beauty, with a number of fantastic beaches as well as lush green mountains, soft white sand dunes and the beautiful Lagoa da Conceição lagoon itself, which aside from stunning visuals also offers a large variety of leisure and sporting options such as boating, kite boarding, wakeboarding, fishing and swimming. If you are looking to stay in a place where the party/action is, we recommend Jurere Internacional, a chi-chi resort on the north end of the island. As far as nightlife and parties, we recommend traveling to Florianopolis Brazil between the months of December and March as it’s summer and the city has a lot of special events especially during Carnival and New Year’s Eve.
