When Do You Want To Go?

A Beautiful Brazilian Beach for Every Day

What is the quintessential Brazilian beach experience? For some, it will all be about catching the perfect wave, playing barefoot football with group of local kids and sipping coconut water in a secret piece of paradise. For others, it can mean watching leather-skinned fisherman bringing in their daily catch in colourful wooden boats, sampling fresh seafood or açaí deserts and a chance to relax in tropical surroundings. For more than a few, it may solely entail endless caipirinhas, beautiful people in skimpy swimwear and all-night dance parties in a white-sand wonderland.

Thankfully, there is a small island in the south of the country - only ninety minutes’ flight from Rio - where sunbathers, surfers and nature lovers can all find their perfect slice of soft sand and clear waters for a few days or a few weeks. An island where travellers can choose between every possible version of the Brazilian beach experience from not one, but forty-two, gorgeous beaches.

Things to Do
Places to Stay

Where to stay

Basing yourself in the centre of the island in the laid-back but modern town of Lagoa da Conceição - with its selection of supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants and beachwear stores – is a popular choice. However it will mean that a bus is required to bring you to/from a beach. If you prefer to be in a less busy town, and only walking distance to a few excellent beaches, then Barra de Lagoa is a good base. Booking months in advance if travelling during the peak summer season (January and February) is advised. 

Hotel Boutique Quinta das Videiras

A beautiful boutique property located in town on the edge of Conceicao Lake, close to all the action. Designed to reflect an old-style Portuguese hotel, the interiors at Quinta das Videiras have been lovingly decorated with a lot of time and thought. Onsite is a lovely outdoor pool area in which to enjoy a glass of wine. This is a perfect base for the more independent traveller who would enjoy exploring the island at their own pace.

Costao do Santinho Resort

Situated on a white sandy beach in the northeast of Santa Catarina, Costao do Santinho All-Inclusive Resort hosts a varied schedule of leisure activities and hikes, making it an ideal getaway for families or indeed any traveller who doesn't like to sit still for too long! Among its facilities, the property features two large swimming pools, a Pilates studio, restaurant and large golf course. The hotel takes its social and environmental responsibility seriously by supporting local artesanal fishermen.

13 Day Off the Beaten Track Brazil

Stray far from the beaten track with this holiday tickign off some of Brazil's lesser-known destinations. Begin in Sao Paulo with its mix of cultures and wonderful cuisine, before taking in the sea side oasis of Florianopolis.
