When I was there I was lucky to find a place to sit down, it's far from the mein road and the parking is too much expensive! But the beach is beautiful, I guess it's much better to go there with the boat-taxi which you can find in many places.

It's a very quiet and cozy beach. We arrived early in the morning and the water was very clean and calm. People started to arrive and got a little busy near the beach bars. But it is a quite pleasant beach. A family beach for sure... Love it!!!

The name "tartaruga" came about in the past, for being dumping ground of sea turtles. Beware of rocks and sea urchins.

Nice beach with plenty of restaurants / bars. Loads of sun loungers are available for free from the bars, sit down enjoy the views and have a drink as you watch the world go by. Recommended for a day at the beach!

Very nice beach with a lot of beach-beds for free. If you go in September-October you may see turtles. We went in June, so we did not see any but loved the beach. I can truly say that Tartaruga is better than Jao Fernandes which is said to be the best in Buzios.

Went in the off season. It was cloudy and lots of bugs. A few bars at the beach. They will ask you if u want a free chair but it's not free bc u have to buy a drink. Very accessible by taxi.
