We travelled to Buzios after a long tour Peru Bolivia Argentina and Brazil ending our long tour resting on Ossos beach was perfect therapy. The beach is very private small and relaxing hire 2 deck chairs a table and parasol for £6.00 and spend the day swimming relaxing sunning and people watching just divine!

Not a big fan of the speech but it's okay if you want to spend the day right on Main Street could just jump in the water so you have easy access to all the bars and restaurants from the main road and booziest but I wouldn't consider it a great beach and spend the day does lots of boats... More

Over 20 beaches most with sheltered bays, soft sand and nice people. At the end of the Bardot boardwalk is Praia da Ossos a small family beach and a fishing village with fresh fish restaurants and small bars, a really friendly spot

Make sure the hotel packs a picnic lunch, not too many food vendors. Nice place to kayak and paddle board. Loved the calmness of this beach

it´s not a place where you can find bones, but lot of energy, sun and a beautiful clean water; and, be4 you go, don´t you forget that: The world gives you much vodka!

Nice little beach with nice little houses right at the border. They say that pirates used to come and stay as a hideout. The whole area has a nice cozy flair with the little pathways leading around the trees and around the whole beach.

Close to hotels and restaurants but clean and with good access to the water. The water taxis leave from one end of the beach and boats are moored in the bay. Umbrellas and chairs for rent again - about 20 real a day. Lots to watch as you sit and enjoy the sun.
