The main attraction of Floripa is the “New Year's Eve of Dreams”, carried out in North Seaside Avenue. Organized by Florianopolis City Hall, the party is concentrated in the warehouse, where every year a large stage is set up with varied presentations. But for this year's edition, the City Hall made an unprecedented decision: there won't be the famous fireworks display. This change is due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The prefecture's decision is to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Under normal conditions, the edge of the North Bay is closed to vehicle traffic and a crowd takes over the avenue to see the pyrotechnic shows that come out of the sea and the Hercílio Luz Bridge, the city's main postcard. It is estimated that annually more than 100 thousand people follow the event closely.


Os bars, hotels, restaurants e nightclubs nearby organize parties and closed dinners. These events usually work with advance reservation, which includes dinner with a set menu and unlimited drinks. However, it is good to plan ahead and guarantee your invitation in advance, as places usually fill up early.

For those who like to follow the tradition and do not need to skip the seven waves at the time of the turn, Santa Catarina Island has about 42 beaches to suit all tastes and styles. Thousands of people gather every year on the sands of beaches.


Just like in Centro, the restaurants and bars located by the sea also take advantage of the occasion to promote parties, which also work with a reservation system.

It is worth mentioning that, at the beginning of October, some beach club on the island have already started ticket sales and reservations.

The tip then is to choose the beach that best suits your style. Ideally, read our Special Itineraries of the llha and know each part. In short, those who like to party can choose the ones from the north of the island such as Jurerê Beach (Jurerê e Jurerê International), Englishsaint and those of east of the islandLike soft beach, Barra da Lagoa e joaquina. For those who prefer a more isolated location, the beaches of south of the island as Frame e Azores are the most recommended.

Regardless of the chosen location, the ideal is to plan ahead so you can enjoy the party without problems and with all the necessary care.

Choose your party, explore the magic of the Island and start the New Year with lots of Love, Joy, Prosperity and Peace. These are the votes of the Guia Floripa Team!
