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.

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.

One of the most beautiful beaches in the area, plus good restaurants. It is only a few minutes from the Buzios central area in an ocean taxi.

Beautiful swimming beach where the ocean is calm and you can relax on the water. The instalations on the beach are great and supply anything you may need but be aware that it1s an expensive pleace! If posible, take some food with you!

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