Top 10 Instagrammable places in Florianopolis Brazil
1. Hercílio Luz Bridge
The Hercílio Luz Bridge is an old bridge that connects the island of Florianopolis to the main continent. The bridge is currently under construction and has been for quite some time. To be honest, while the bridge is an impressive piece of architecture, it is not really worth the trip unless you are in the area. Adjacent to the bridge, there is a promenade scattered with outdoor gyms, incredible views, and seaside spots to relax. For us, this strip was more memorable than the bridge itself.
2. San Antonio de Lisboa
3. Lagoinha Do Leste
The Lagoinha do Leste trail is a stunning hike to a great surf beach. It’s a challenging 45-minute hike with steep parts, especially if you carry a surfboard. Despite that, it’s one of the best days in Florianopolis. After surfing, we hiked to a nearby hill and had fun. Remember to bring water and snacks, as there are no shops nearby.
4. Joaquina Beach
5. Lagoa da Conceicao ( Conceicao Lagoon)
6. Gurita Walkaway
7. Casa da Alfandega (Alfandega’s House)
This is a great spot for architecture enthusiasts. Alfandêga’s House is the finest example of neoclassical architecture in Florianópolis. It’s a hub for more than 400 artisans from various parts of the state, showcasing the region’s cultural diversity. This place is a cultural representation of local talent and a popular tourist attraction.
Floripa offers the best of both worlds, offering not only excellent beaches but also a thriving city center. There are plenty of hotels, shops, restaurants, and even a few museums to discover in the city, locally known as the Centro.
