Just swell—a waterfront haven for travelers and locals alike

Situated just off the Brazilian coast and comprised mostly of the 34-mile Santa Catarina Island, the city of Florianopolis serves as the capital of the State of Santa Catarina. As soon as you arrive, you'll see why this spot is so famous for its beautiful beaches. Most notable is the popular resort area of Praia dos Ingleses, nestled at the island's northern tip and well worth your time. Browse Florianopolis vacation rentals on the coast, and find out with this is one of the country's most beloved coastal escapes — by travelers and locals alike.

Things to do

In with the old and new—a modern city packed with history

You can expect a modern experience in the heart of Florianopolis, complete with large shopping malls, upscale eateries, and glam bars and nightclubs. But this doesn't mean you won't find tons of history, too. Florianopolis has an up-and-coming arts scene, which you can experience firsthand at the Santa Catarina Art Museum. Or dive into the local art history at the Victor Meirelles Museum, former home to this beloved Brazilian Artist. The Museum of Man of Sambaqui explores the natural history of the island, while the Palacio Cruz e Sousa focuses on local history.

Activities

From water sports to window-shopping in fab Florianopolis

Given its coastal positioning, most visitors spend their time in Florianopolis enjoying the beaches and partaking in watersports. Head to Lagoa da Conceicao, a stunning saltwater lagoon, for a day of windsurfing and boating. Further south, you'll find more secluded spots for surfing and sunbathing practically solo. If you're considering Florianopolis vacation rentals on Santa Catarina Island, plan to drive across the Pedro Ivo Campos Bridge—the scenic landmark connects the island to a mainland commercial district where you can partake in shopping, nightlife, and an excellent dining scene.

Weather

There's a reason people say to head south for the winter

Through the city, but particularly along Florianopolis's northern coast, you can expect a surge of travelers in the summer months, which are December to March in the Southern Hemisphere. Naturally, this also means higher prices, so plan accordingly as you budget and browse Florianopolis vacation rentals. Alternatively, crowds may dwindle and prices may drop as you get closer to September, which is the region's rainy season. April, which kicks off fall in Brazil, has the added bonus of being the technical off-season, but also marks the beginning of Florianopolis's dry season.

Natural features

Beaches to suit every need (and swimsuit)

With so many beaches around the island, there's something for all interests. In the north are busy, bustling resorts, and to the east, along the Baia Norte, you'll find some of the best waves in the country. Heading south, the surf culture continues, but the beaches become quiet and unspoiled, with a rugged natural beauty and some that can only be reached by trail. Visit the Lagoa da Conceicao, a saltwater lagoon with high winds, making it a great spot for windsurfing. Alternatively, Peri Lagoon is a quiet respite, ideal for nature walks and birdwatching.
