One of Buzios beaches, maybe the most famous? It´s easily accesible from Ossos beach, you can walk around 10 minutes to it. Take into account that it is a small beach and in the peak season (summer) it's awfully crowded! my suggestion is visiting Buzios in spring or fall, when the climate is not burning hot and the beaches are...

Personally this was my second favourite beach. At one end it is reasonably quiet the other end has the bars and restaurants. I loved the bar end which is packed with locals and tourists alike. Loud music pumps out from the bars making it a great atmosphere. Food and drink not as cheap as other beaches but you pay the... More

We went to this beach on our first day! It came recommended as one of the most beautiful beaches in Buzios, by the women at the Department of Tourism. It was over crowded, touristy and you had to pay for an umbrella and chairs, which is the only way you can get a spot in the sand. The drinks/food was... More

We took a taxi boat from Buzios pier over to the beach which cost about 10 REIS per person - well worth it. We were greeted very warmly and offered 'free chairs & table' as long as you bought something. I guess, it helped that my friend was Brazilian but we got the best service! We had fresh coconut, delicious... More

They said the fish we ordered would be ready in 1 hour (that's standard time for preparing, they said). It took over 2 hours for the food to get to us. They took our order to the wrong people... We got coconut water for free, as an "I'm sorry" gift, but it was extremely unpleasant to see they serving food... More

I went to this beach by boat and as soon as I got off the boat there were people vying for custom, offering free sunbeds etc. if you ate in their restaurant. This was ok in a way (you do get the free sunbed). However, naturally the meals were overpriced. It was an ok day out, but there was quite... More

João Fernandes is a clean beach with clear waters, caiaquis and SUP devices, on a beautiful spot. Fun for sure!

This beach is small and a bit crowded, but still quite nice. There are nice corals for snorkeling sessions, as well as other water sports options (kayaks, stand-up-paddle...). Several beach restaurants provide great service.
