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...

Place were you find Rocka Restaurant. They have a lounge for guests of the restaurant where you can enjoy having a drink with a wonderful sea view. Beach is little but nice.

Praya Brava became our favorite beach, (less people and better water) especially if you walk the beach towards the fishermen's end. Last bar stand was the best in terms of both service and quality. Dont miss the champagne bar (at the entrance to the beach, look for yellow unbrellas) for your after beach drink

Great beach to spend a day or two.beach is split in two, one where a few people do surfing, another with more calm waters for a more relaxing time. water was absolutely fantastic, clear, and stunning!

We came to this beach in the evening just before dinner at Rocka Fish. It is not as big as some of the other beaches in Buzios and it seems more striking because of the hight of the rocks behind it and the waves which are higher here than we saw anywhere else.

This is my favorite beach in all Búzios. It is beautifully located, pleasant to swim and has access (a trail) to Olho de Boi nudist beach. The Brava beach offers few simple outdoor bars, where you can have a cold beer or a caipirinha. Higher level, near the car parking area, there is a reasonable restaurant. A bit pricy. Enjoyed...
