The island of Florianópolis is located just off the southern coast of Brazil and is connected to the mainland by two bridges, one of which is a wonderful old suspension bridge which looks stunning when lit at night.

Florianópolis has beautiful lagoons, stunning sandy beaches, rolling mountains lush with Atlantic rainforest, soft white dunes and numerous small offshore islands. It caters for a variety of interests from relaxing on the beach, to sand boarding, kite surfing, hiking and whale-watching.

There are rustic authentic fishing villages, charming small towns and pristine nature reserves. Thanks to the wild surf on the eastern coast, Florianópolis has become one of Brazil’s surfing hot spots and Joaquina and Mole Beaches host the famous WCT/WQS surf competition, as well as lots of other national and local championships. This is a great place for amateur and experienced surfers alike and after a hard day in the water, you can enjoy the equally vibrant nightlife!
