An incredibly beautiful region with close links to nature, Southeast Brazil is known both as an area to relax in, but also has no shortage of nightlife to keep you occupied in the evening. A great idea if you’re looking to escape the trials and tribulations of city life without sacrificing the small luxuries associated with it.

The Area

The majority of the beaches in the Southeast region of Brazil are based around the beautiful city of Florianopolis, a unique city situated mainly on an island but linked to the mainland by a network of bridges.

This city has a lively feel and is well-known as a party town, but also has areas that cater for those looking for peace and quiet, as well as over 40 secluded, sandy beaches for all to enjoy. Florianopolis is also known as one of the best places for surfing in the whole of Brazil, with consistently good waves all year round.

There is also a beautiful central area in Florianopolis with some excellent Spanish colonial architecture which is well worth checking out.

Florianopolis acts as the centre of the area and from here you can make easy connections all over Brazil from the airport. It’s easy to get around on public transport or by taxi, however it’s also easy to walk around many of the attractions. Beaches in the surrounding areas may require a car to reach – talk to a Latin Routes Travel Specialist to find out more.

Best Time To Go

The Southern Beaches are known for being sunny all year round and temperatures often exceed 30 degrees Celsius in the summer months between November and February. However, don’t forget that Brazil has a tropical climate, meaning there is also a chance of rain. Contact us to find out more about the best time to book your holiday to Brazil.

In the surrounding area you have Praia Mole which is a beautiful stretch of sand with some of the area’s best waves, making it popular with the surfing crowd.

If you’re looking for a more laid back, bohemian atmosphere then trendy Lagoa de Conceicao has a thriving arts scene and vibrant nightlife.

There are lots of opportunities to check out some of the region’s amazing wildlife. The turtle sanctuary on Praia do Forte affords visitors the opportunity to learn more about these incredible creatures and even spend some time up close and personal with a few as well!
