Why take this tour?

 Lagoinha do Leste is one of the natural treasures of Santa Catarina Island - Florianópolis. Due to its geographical isolation, it is also one of the most preserved beaches, including the whole set: beach - forest - fauna - flora - mountains - river.  The beach - wild and unspoiled - is 1,250 meters long with soft white sands. The sea has good waves for surfing and requires attention from sunbathers. A safe and pleasant option is the clear waters of the small lagoon on site.  We will cross forests and have the opportunity to observe animals in their own habitat, mainly seabirds, but also sea lions / dolphins / turtles / crabs. With a little luck we will have beautiful and unusual encounters with wildlife.  The trail has several natural lookouts with unforgettable panoramic views and excellent for shooting. Take your gear. I'm sure you will have an unforgettable day!  

What’s included?

  • A delicious "gourmet vegetarian sandwich" and fresh tropical fruits.
