Florianópolis

Beaches in Brazil. 27-Oct-2009 .BrazilBeachTravel
Florianópolis is located on the most famous island in southern Brazil, the island of Santa Catarina , Ilha da magia .

A trip to Florianópolis is more than a trip to an individual tourist destination, Florianópolis is an island of considerable size that includes a group of destinations and beaches that can be part of an exclusive trip in itself. For this reason it is important to know from the beginning where part of the island one will stay.

There are those who stay in the center and use this location as a center of operations from which to travel all the beaches and attractions of the island. Option usually chosen by those who arrive here with a car or rent it; or there are those who choose one of the beaches and forget the rest of the island until the next trip.

The reality is that if you do not have your own mobility and you are staying at one of the beaches, access to the other beaches is not entirely simple, and sometimes the best option is a long trip to the center to combine with another line towards the destination beach. Recently things improved in that sense with the inclusion of buses that connect the most important beaches of the north and the center of the island. However, this service only works in high season(between the end of December and the end of Carnival) and is quite more expensive than conventional buses.

Personally I think the best thing to do is forget about the center(not to mention stay at a hotel on the continent) and have one of the beaches as base accommodation and then choose a couple of other beaches in other regions of the island as an alternative for walks. The center of the island can be left to make purchases on rainy days, which by the way are not usually missing in this part of Brazil. Of course these decisions will depend mainly on how many days are destined for the trip to ilha da magia .

In this area of ​​the island is relatively fast access between different beaches, it is possible to go quickly between Joaquina and Praia Mole and from there to Barra da Lagoa ; a strategic point to stay is the eastern part of Lagoa da Conceição( View on satellite map ) since this part of the lagoon, besides being a place of great beauty allows easy access to several of the best beaches(such as Joaquina and Praia Mole ) even on foot, the buses that connect this part of the island with the center and Barra da Lagoa are frequent and the journey is relatively short.
