Lagoa da Conceição is a district located next to a large lagoon of the same name near the center of Florianópolis, capital city of the state of Santa Catarina, located in the south of Brazil. The area has a small town center with a medical clinic, post office, pharmacies, supermarkets, boutique stores and specialty shops. The town gets particularly crowded during the Brazilian summer vacation months of January and February. The Lagoa da Conceição district also includes some of the island's best beaches, including Praia Mole beach and Joaquina beach, both of which have hosted major international professional surf tour events.
