You love to be in nature? If so, go and enjoy. You have many steps up in a trail between trees and stones, sometimes difficult, till the beautiful scene. But believe, you won’t regret. Wonderful nature!!!

I bet you won’t miss the chance of taking a photo at Lagoinha. It was probably The best hike I did in Floripa with a group of friends. There are also good restaurants nearby where you can get sth to eat after a long hike

Lagoinha do Leste is one of the smallest and beautiful beaches in the south of Florianopolis island. It is still a natural paradise, where the contrast of the green from Mata Atlântica Rainforest and the blue of sea play the biggest role. Go and enjoy!

It's not a long beach but it's got pretty good stretch. You should bring your own pareo or towel to sit on the beach coz it's quite expensive to rent a beach chair and umbrella. You can get to this beach by bus from nearby...More

You can spend the whole day here, little bit windy but the pool is fantastic! You hike to this place and take a water taxi back to the civilized beach. Bring a football!
