Forno Beach runs along the water behind Rua de Pedras and is where the fisherman gut their catch and fish, so the beach itself is pretty much center to a zillion birds all... read more

My favorite beach in Arraial do Cabo. I recommend going by boat but you can also hike a small mountain to get there, which you'll have an amazing view. Great beach for snorkeling, underwater pictures and you also can have a special lunch at the local restaurant, reached by boat.

This is a beach in arraial do cabo, there is a walk up and down a hill to get there, it might be tiring, but it is totally worth it. It has less wind than the beach next to it since it is protected by mountains.Beautiful snorkel spot too, clear water, you can see your feet even if you are... More

This was just like the beach in my dreams. Beautiful setting in a secluded bay with a gently sloping sandy beach into the sea. There is also a perfect little beach bar serving delicious snacks (pastel de camarones - amazing) and meals - fresh fish delicious. The bar also provides tables and chairs on the beach. There were only a... More

This one is got the its name due to the sand, as it absorbs a lot of the heat. Small and quiet , this one could be called in english , the "oven" beach

Forno Beach runs along the water behind Rua de Pedras and is where the fisherman gut their catch and fish, so the beach itself is pretty much center to a zillion birds all fighting for fish guts (completely entertaining; we got some great vulture and gull photos). However, if you are facing the long dock on Forno Beach and look... More

Not the easiest to get to, but well worth it! My husband and I loved that we were one of 12 people on this beach. We had space to spread out and play. The water was amazing - it is a bit cold, but we really like that - and so do the seals that came to visit us while... More

That´s the truth. This the real most beach in Buzios. All that paradise photos you see about Buzios are from here. Unfortunatelly you won´t find a good place to eat here. Then spend your morning and go eat in downtown. But the Beach is unforgetable.
