The focus of our program My Friend in Floripa is to have a guide, who is actually a friend, who will show the best of the island in a funny, interesting and safe way, like a friend does for you!

Suggestions for guided tours around the island:

  • South of the Island – We go to the astonished, amazing and inspiring view of the Morro das Pedras Belvedere; follow for a quiet environment where you can relax in the calm waters of the Lagoa do Peri (Peri´s Lake); followed for delicious beach (which looks like a little fishing village), Armacao Beach; Then, a small jump in troubled waters, great for surfing, Matadeiro´s Beach *; follow to Pantano do Sul, with a brief visit to Açores Beach. Further, we continue ´till Ribeirão da Ilha, at the southern end, where the typical Portuguese colonial architecture still standing. Great place to enjoy a delicious oyster gratin.

* At Matadeiro´s Beach there is a trail that goes to a Desert Beach called Lagoinha do Leste (Little Lake at East) which is optional. Beautiful path, however takes a long walk (about 3 hours roundtrip). To do this trail, indicates a second day of sightseeing.

  • Downtown and Continent – Visit to Hercílio Luz Bridge and its viewpoint, “Old Town” (historical center), Cathedral, Palacio Cruz e Souza, Public Market, and Figueira Square (XV Square). After a brief walk through downtown, on a hot summer day, with the possibility of prolongation for shopping, the suggestion is enjoy the Continent ´s beaches as Palmas, in Governador Celso Ramos, or Guarda do Embaú in Palhoça. Both beautiful beaches and is a way to escape from the traffic towards the beaches of the island.
