How to Spend 2 Days in Florianopolis

How to Spend 2 Days in Florianopolis

Two days in Florianopolis gives you enough time to travel the island end to end to see firsthand the diversity of its beaches and spectacular coastal scenery. Read on for tips on how to make the most of your 48 hours in Floripa. 

Day 1: Downtown and the Northern Beaches

**Morning:**Start your first day on the island with a guided tour of downtown Florianopolis, the capital city of Santa Catarina and the island’s commercial hub. Learn about Santa Catarina’s Portuguese history as you explore historic sites such as November 15 Square (Praça Novembro XV), Palace Cruz e Souza, and the Hercílio Luz Bridge.

**Afternoon:**This afternoon, head north to enjoy some of the island’s most accessible and  swimmable beaches. Hop in a car and explore on your own, or visit with a guide who can point out the best spots. For something a little more active, choose a cycling tour of northern Florianopolis to visit Mozambique, Santinho, and Ingleses beaches.

**Night:**As the sun goes down, head to one of the beach clubs on the northern coast to get a taste of the island’s glamorous nightlife. Depending on the time of year, you might hear an international DJ spinning tunes as Santa Catarina’s well-heeled dance late into the night.  

Day 2: The Wild South

**Morning:**Some of the island’s most beautiful, rugged, and pristine beaches lie to the south. Guided trips to this spectacular part of Santa Catarina often start near Conceição Lagoon (Lagoa da Conceição), with visits to Campeche Beach and the Morro das Pedras overlook for a panoramic view of this scenic stretch of Brazilian coast.  

**Afternoon:**Continue south for an afternoon of beach hopping to Saquino, Solidao, Pântano do Sul, Armação, and Matadeiro beaches. You’ll have plenty of time to stroll in the sand and swim in the calm seas of this lesser-visited part of Florianopolis. 

**Night:**As you head back north, stop at the charming seaside village of Riberão da Ilha, accessed by a lovely winding seaside road, to feast on an island specialty: oysters. You can see the white floats marking the locations of oyster farms as you dine on the fresh bounty of the sea.
