Florianopolis, a little-known island gem, is Santa Catarina's
cool island capital. Unwind on its white sand beaches and swim in
cool shimmering waters which, incidentally, produce some of the
most flavoursome oysters you'll ever taste. Head into the
rainforest and hike farm trails or take a surfing lesson on
Joaquina Beach, famed for its perfect waves. Combine all this with
some seriously chic city life and you're onto a winner.
