An island paradise full of pristine beaches, lush forests and soft sand dunes, Florianopolis is fantastic to explore from every angle. Discover the best picture-worthy locations, to capture perfect panoramic views.

Mirante do Morro da Lagoa da Conceição

This lookout right above the largest and most expansive lake in Florianópolis is popular with tourists, but that shouldn’t stop you from joining the crowds and snapping a selfie here. With a spectacular view of the lake, dunes and the ocean, this is by far the easiest, most accessible place to get a panoramic view.

Café do Mirante

After a day at Barra da Lagoa, head back to the lakeside and take a quick stop at Café do Mirante to enjoy an espresso and a traditional Brazilian cheese bread, pão de queijo. Take in the sunset from their comfortable balcony and enjoy the peaceful view of the lake from the eastern side.

Dunas da Joaquina

For an equally lovely panoramic view that requires a little more leg work, head to the eastern side of the island and climb up the dunes at Joaquina Beach. These gorgeous sands offer sweeping views of the dunes and the beach, and are especially lovely at sunset.

The Roof

As tranquil as the views are from the less developed side of the island, the city views are equally stunning, especially at the appropriately named club, The Roof located on Beira Mar Norte. This place has become a sensation in Florianópolis and is set within the Majestic Palace Hotel. It’s the perfect spot to take in the bay views and city lights of Florianópolis.
