South of the Island Tour
The Experiment Floripa itinerary takes you on a lovely tour through the south of the Island. The region is the most preserved of the city. In addition, there the beaches, the coasts, and the Lagoa do Peri would take any tourists breath away. The south of the Island tour starts at Praia do Campeche, famous for the quality of the waves and great kitesurfing conditions. Between May and July, it is also possible to accompany the coming and going of artisanal fishermen during the harvest of the tainha, a species of fish typical of the region.
The neighborhood is also a dip into the history of the relationship between Europe and Latin America. There are indications that French author Antoine de Saint Exupery was a fan of the region. Seems like the author of the book ‘The Little Prince’ visited the neighborhood several times between the 1920s and 1940s.
After the visit to Praia do Campeche, the next stop is the Ribeirão district of the island. It’s a historical and cultural landmark of the Azorean settlement of the 17th century. The region is the first European community on the island of Santa Catarina. The place is also known for being an important location of oyster production in Brazil.
