Nice beach surrounded by nature with little infrastructure outside of the 2 restaurants/club. The sea is quite agitated and it can be quite windy too, but good for a swim.

Brava, which means strong or forceful, is a really good name for this beach. It faces the open ocean, is littered with rocks among the the sand, and the waves can be truly powerful. This is not a beginner's beach or one suitable for kids. For those not up to facing down the ocean's forces there is a fine restaurant... More

The worst beach I've ever been to. It was full of rubbish. No place to sit down in the sand except the bar, but you should buy something to sit there. It looked expensive so we decided to go to an other beach. Luckily, you can go to other beaches in Búzios where you can sit wherever you want for... More

Great little beach however when the tide comes in unless you like wet feet it could be a problem. Don't let this put you off because it has a great little cheap food shack or Rocka which is a great quality seafood restaurant when the tide is in...

Good surfers beach as waves seemed larger than at others in the area. Nice to sit and have a drink at the whacky restaurant/ bars at the entrance to the beach.

It is a wide sandy beach, but at high tide the sand strip is quite narrow and it gets crowded. It is divided in two parts. The first one has some bars, restaurants and clubs overlooking the ocean, very nice. The second part is accessible by walking over some rocks, a bit tricky when wet. There is no infrastructure on...
