Located just over the hill from downtown Florianopolis, the Lagoa da Conceição neighborhood is situated on a lagoon that bears the same name. This is Florianopolis’ oldest neighborhood and still retains some of the colonial architecture from centuries ago. Today, the area is known as the city’s laid‐back, eclectic beach neighborhood, often hosting a wealth of outdoor activities, charming boutiques, great restaurants and fun nightlife. Lagoa de Conceição’s central location near downtown, the beaches and various areas of interest make it a favorite spot for visitors to stay and for locals to live.
This is where mountains meet lagoons, sand dunes and beaches — and this sort of diverse landscape and natural beauty promotes an active lifestyle. Visitors can experience this outdoor‐lover’s haven like the locals do and kitesurf or paddleboard on the lagoon, sandboard the dunes, surf the legendary waves, jog along the scenic paths, set up a game of beach volleyball or just kick back and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Sunsets light up the sky nightly, as people flock to casual waterfront bars to take in nature’s show. Once the sun goes down, restaurants serve up locally caught seafood and cold drinks, while nightclubs offer live music and DJs spinning genres ranging from the region’s favorite, Sertanejo (Brazilian country music) to pop and hip hop.
The neighborhood of Lagoa da Conceição is located on the shores the lagoon of the same name. It is located in the center of Santa Catarina Island and is accessible by Avenida da Rendeiras coming from the east and Rodovia Admar Gonzaga coming from the West.
