Epic Rides in Brazil Florianópolis
This Epic Ride takes place on the island of
Santa Catarina in the Brazilian state with the same name. The island is about 54km long and is connected to the mainland via a few massive bridges.
Florianópolis city sits on the mainland side of the island which makes for a great mix of island and city life.
Santa Catarina island is located in the South of Brazil.
Type of Road
As of 2017, mostly asphalt. Some sand roads along the beach. Traffic congestion is heavy in the summer months.
When is the best time to Ride?
Anytime. It’s sunny Brazil 🙂
Lagoinha do Leste Beach
Logoinha do leste beach is located in the south area of Florianopolis Island.
You can’t ride to the beach as it can only be reached by a hiking trail that starts
here or a boat from Pântano do Sul beach.
Because of the remoteness of the beach, it is super chilled. Make sure you bring a tent and enough food as you’ll want to stay for a while.
Hiking to Lagoinha do Leste Beach Beaches
You won’t be far from some amazing beaches. With a moto you can ride on the beach in the north of the island
Food, Drink and People
In all my travels, Floripa has been the place that is the most similar to my homeland, Australia. From the sun, the surf, food, drinks and the relaxed laid back people, Floripa has it all.
Why is it an ‘Epic Ride’
Maybe not an ‘Epic’ ride, but the island is super chilled and is a relief from riding on the hot mainland.
