    ABOUT THE ISLAND:

    Florianopolis is one of the most beautifull islands in Brazil surrounded by lakes, dunes, native forests and dozens of idyllic beaches. There are lots of outdoor activities here like surfing, hiking, soccer, capoeira, beach volleyball, beach tennis... You can also just chill in one of the many beaches around or explore the urban side of the island. Believe me, you’ll fall in love with this place and will never get bored.
