That is the beach you can walk in the morning, run in the afternoon, stay during a day drinking a beer and eating a fried fish.You can refresh from the sun in a delicious small wave. Superb!

I really don;t like this beach.Too much wind and too expensive. There are better beaches to go in Buzios.

We went to Geriba a few times while we were in Buzios. We enjoyed being on a busier beach as there was great people watching and lots going on. The beach vendors were not as friendly as on some of the other beaches we visited but we still had a great time.

Lively beach popular with surfers. A couple of small bars set up on the beach where you can sip a cocktail or two. Hawkers stroll around selling food and beachwear, but they are never intrusive. Loved it!

Nice young people. Waves for surfers. Good infrastructure and view. Nice for walking during low tides and clean. Can be cold during winter.
