Ilha de Santa Catarina

We arrived at Florianopolis at 21h, and leave the bus to get in another local bus to go to Barra da Lagoa where there is a hostel that we have been recommended "Barra Beach Club”.
It is really high recommended. The situation, the views and the atmosphere makes it difficult to leave this place.



After taking the "Café da Manhã" we went to Armacao, having to do a couple of changes of urban buses, to walk till Pantano do Sulto by the coast. We walk the beach Matadeiro and Lagoinha do Leste that are in a municipal park. Virgin territory.




The next morning we visit the Center Proyecto Tamar of Florianopolis for the protection of sea turtles. And then we walk up to a natural swimming pools to do some snorkeling. A lot of sun and water.
At the afternoon, more relax ...

By next morning, they recommend a path that goes from Barra to Praia Mole through Praia Galheta, the only nudist beach on the island. The views are spectacular, and the Beach Galheta great! Almost empty and good for swimming.



From Praia Mole we walk up to Lagoa da Conceicao, and from there we take a bus to the main bus station to see if we can find a way to go to the Parque Natural Aprados da Serra. We were told that it was not possible, but we found a way to go to Praia Grande from Florianópolis, we will do it with the company União making one change at Araranguá .
We have salad and rice with eggplant and tomato for dinner at the terrace of the hostel.

This days of relax and sun have helped my body to get some coloration.
