Florianopolis in June / July
My girlfriend and I are thinking about a trip to Florianopolis in June and July. How is the weather at this time? We want it warm enough to hit the beach every day. If the weather is good, any suggestions for a hotel or pousada? Thanks.
Re: Florianopolis in June / July
June and July are winter months...compare it to Nov. and Dec. The south of Brazil does have cold spells, sometimes getting into the teens at night. But Florianopolis does get some great weather most of the year. It rains about once a week and there is a constant breeze. If you just want to hang out at the beach and relax, I recommend the north of Brazil. I just visited a town called Itacare in the state of Bahia. It's a old cacau(chocolate)port and fishing village. It still is mostly untouched but with some good tourist sites. The restaurants are good and still relativly cheap. One draw back of Florianopolis is that it has become fairly expensive. I have lived here for 3 years and I own a small cafe call CafeCultura. I love it here and it is a great place with lots to offer. But if you want the beach during June and July.....it's not the best time....maybe it will be hot or maybe not. Josh
Travel Tips for Florianópolis
Sandboarding in the dunes
Ask the locals where you find Joaquina Beach
Just as you walk down the road toward the beach you will see a bar. Opposite the bar are some huge sand dunes. There is a guy that rents out sandboards by the hour. I think it was 10Reals per hour.
It's good fun but very hard work.
Take some water and sun glasses.

Praia da Ferrugem
Turn right on the Praia da Ferrugem Sign when you’re almost arriving at Garopaba City by the main road (you can see the Mormaii factory really close by). The road will lead you directly to the beach where you are going to see many bars, restaurants and small markets.
During summer this is place pumps party and a lot of tourists. The night clubs close their doors by dawning, good place for Party Animals. The break itself is one of the most consistent breaks in Garopaba / Imbituba region. There’s always something rideable. The left corner produces good lefts with a channel that take you right on the peak. The best wind is NE, E and E,S,SE swells.
The right corner is called by locals “Australinha “ (Tiny Australia), with light S wind and E,SE swell there’s a good right that peels like Kirra. Right after “Australinha” there’s a beach named Barra or Barrinha, a good beach break with lefts and rigths with good quality when the swell is no bigger than 6 feet.
Florianopolis - a.k.a. Floripa
"Floripa and Isla Santa Catarina"
Florianopolis (called by the locals Floripa) was founded 1673 by Francisco Dias Velho. The actual city is partly on the mainland and partly on Isla Santa Catarina. The architecture of the historical part shows the influence of the Portuguese immigrants (mainly from the Azores) which arrived 1748.Two bridges connect Florianopolis, the famous Hercilio Luz which was planned by Gustave Eiffel and the new double highway bridge.
