Hop on two wheels and take a ride along the spectacular wild coast of Florianópolis! This cycling adventure takes you to the island’s most beautiful beaches and historic fishing villages, with stops along the way for local snacks, a freshwater swim, and plenty of photo ops.
Your Florianópolis bike tour will start in Lagoa da Conceição and take you to some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Along the way, you’ll see old fishing villages, where the native Manezinho culture has been preserved, and find hidden corners where wild nature prevails.
We’ll stop first at Lagoinha, a remote beach only accessible via trails, then move onto Campeche, one of the area’s first settled communities and a popular place for surfers, kitesurfers, and those who like to party on the beach at sunset.
Next up, we’ll veer our bikes toward Morro das Pedras (Mount of the Rocks) Beach, a stretch of sand known for its spectacular rock formation and wild waves. We’ll take a break for some local refreshments like sugar cane juice and polenta.
Then it’s back on the bikes and over to the Parque Municipal da Lagoa do Peri, where you’ll get a chance to dive into a freshwater lagoon and give those cycling legs a break. Refreshed from your swim (and no doubt hungry!), we’ll cycle over to Armação village for lunch. This quiet spot is one of Florianópolis’ major fishing centres and in the 1700s was a launching point for whalers.
Our last stop will be Matadeiro Beach, a spot where no motor vehicles can access, but surfers love to gather. We’ll have time to wander the one-kilometre beach before hopping back on our bikes and heading back to Lagoa da Conceição.
