We visited this place on a wednesday early in the morning. We wanted to find a beach thats perfect for us.

We took a 10 Reals water-taxi to this beach on a Tuesday during the busy season and had the best time! We were greeted right away and seated with two chairs and an umbrella fairly close to the beach.

This one is surrounded by excellent guesthouses and hotels and with some very good restaurants with its tables right on the sand near sho=re where one can order drinks and fingerfoods right there, with the water reaching your feet.

The beach is beautiful and the water clear and warm. It is the sort of beach you go to if you want loud music and watersports... not for me but ideal for young people

This is an easy beach to sit and spend a few hours if you don't mind crowds. Ordering a drink will get you some chairs and an umbrella and usually there's no pressure to keep buying more drinks. Lots of people watching, wading in the water and seeing an occasional tour boat go by. A fine relaxing afternoon for Buzios.
