Best of Brazil


Florianopolis

Florianopolis, capital of the southern state of Santa Catarina, lies mostly on the island of Ilha de Santa Catarina. The mainland part of the city, where all the business happens, has some interesting colonial buildings but most people skip these and head straight to the beaches. Among the main activities are diving, surfing, sandboarding on the dunes, trekking and rafting. The east-coast beaches are considered the nicest, with large waves for surfing and plenty of sand area. The northern beaches are calmer, better for swimming, and this is where most of the hotels and restaurants are situated. Apart from beautiful beaches the island also has its share of old forts, including Sao Jose, Ratones and Anhatomirim, which were built to protect against invaders during the Portuguese reign. The mainland and the island are connected by the picturesque Ponte Hercilio Luz bridge. It was built in 1926 and modeled, to a smaller scale, on San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge. The city is modern by Brazilian standards with an efficient transport system and can boast the lowest crime and pollution rates among the country's state capitals. The city is about a 5-hour road trip from Curitiba and 12 hours from Sao Paulo.
