Welcome to Barra da Lagoa & Around
The fishing village of Barra da Lagoa sits about 8km north of Lagoa da Conceição along the eastern side of the lake. It's a backpacker-friendly enclave made all the more picturesque by the Canal da Barra, with colorful fishing boats and pretty rock formations dotting the snaking route to the sea. Praia Barra da Lagoa merges here with Santa Catarina's longest beach, the 8.5km Praia do Moçambique, to form a stunning, 14km strand, the latter hidden from the road by a thriving pine forest. Praia do Moçambique is protected as part of the Parque Florestal do Rio Vermelho, so the only construction is around the town of Barra da Lagoa.
