"Florianopolis is an island..." Brazil Off The Beaten Path Tip by kathyceo

Brazil Off The Beaten Path: 114 reviews and 141 photos

Florianopolis is an island south of San Paulo--a jewel of a place! It is the picture perfect resort location, but without much of the development you would see in other countries. (It is beginning however) Lovely beaches, great beach restaurants, island living. I found this very different from much of Brazil, you definately need a car, and the beaches vary greatly in degrees, undertow and sand. There are over 42 beaches on the island alone!
