We were lucky as the beach was pretty empty on a gorgeous spring day. Quiet blue water, soft sand , restaurant near by, and a very enjoyable experience. We've been told that it can get busy as this beach is a favorite with families, but it's not what we saw.

This beach was only a 5 minute walk from our Vila and it was BEAUTIFUL! The sand was hot, the water was cool and it is a more secluded beach which is wonderful. Beautiful view, water was pretty calm and we even saw a turtle. Lots of vendors on the beach selling jewelry, drinks, food, etc so if you want... More

We stayed at a pousada in Buzios that was a five minute walk to Ferradura Beach. This is a beautiful cove with a long beach, very tiny "waves" (more like being at a lake), and it has nice little activities like kayak rental, swan boat rental, etc. Perfect for families with young children or toddlers. As we were there in... More

The beach is very clean and with no waves. It´s very nice for kids and sports, like kayak and stand up paddle.

I loved it so much that I went back there twice even though I wanted to explore other beaches as well. This beach is on the bay so it's quiet and I loved that there were no waves! The water was sparkling and having cafes and restaurants at the end of the beach was great for those spending most of... More

Ferradura was my favorite beach in Buzios. Calm and quiet with just the most peaceful view of the bay and turquoise water. The sand was white and powdery. Super easy to rent an umbrella and beach chairs, and there several unobtrusive vendors selling snacks and drinks. The only downside was that the water was super cold and the wind picked... More

Okay, blown away by the seclusion of this beach. We rented chairs for a nominal fee, had some corn on the cob from a vendor, bought a beer and hunkered down on the beach. Water was clear, chilly and salty. Sand was soft and blonde. We opted for the beach area that wasn't as crowded in exchange for a wind... More
