This is the most famous beach in Buzios and it is supposed to be the best one. The truth is, I likes it very much. The beach is quite small and one of the most transparent water I saw in Buzios. I went there during low season for which we were only few people in the beach but I am... More

What a great spot at the top end of Buzios. Nice for snorkelling and just hanging out with friends/family.

Joao Fernandes is a nice and not so crowded beach, with good swimming possibilities and good for snorkeling. The water is quiet so not suitable for surfing (you need to go to the other part of the peninsula for that). A couple of places rent chairs, umbrellas and canoes. If you rent a chair, you are expected to order a... More

My friend had recommended this beach to me and when we got there (after visiting several other beaches), I realized that indeed, this one was the best! Make sure to go early so you can get umbrellas and chairs :)

I like this beach specially because the water was quite warm and without any waves so you could actually stay for hours just floating in the water. As in the rest of the beaches from the area, the water is also very clean and you can perfectly see through it.
