Lagoa da Conceição
This place, illustrating one of the most beautiful postcard pictures of Florianópolis, is one of the most popular sites of the island due to its location at the lake. As it was one of the first settlements in Florianópolis, the colonisation by the Azores can be found within the architecture of many houses and in traditions of the native inhabitants. With its central position within Florianópolis, Lagoa de Conceicao forms the heart of the island. The little village provides a good infrastructure, containing hotels and lovely pousadas in familiar surroundings, cozy cafés, bars, night clubs, restaurants, supermarkets, small shopping centers and stores of all kinds. Within the "Centrinho" of Lagoa this is where the action is.
The landscape of this idyllic location is also impressing: The turquoise-coloured lagoon has a longitude of 15 kilometers and is connected to the sea by a channel, a unique dune landscape and many gorgeous beaches, which are nearby and perfectly convenient for surfing.
