“Chockablock!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This beach is soooo busy! People are 6 deep and you need a car or to arrange a taxi to get there and back. But the upsides are the crashing waves and massages on the beach. And I also quite like the fact that vendors pass but with food and beach ware.

“Geriba is my favorite beach in Buzios”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I've visited Buzios twice (2009 & 2012). Geriba is my favorite beach in Buzios. It's is long, open beach with beautiful people, amazing sunsets, nice restaurants, good music, landscape of small mountains & excellent waves for surfing. The tricky part is gaining access to the beach, if you don't rent a car or take a taxi. The van transportation is inexpensive runs the main road from the north to south side of the region, but you'll need to exit at the bus stop in the main Geriba commericial square & navigate several blocks (10-15 minutes) by foot.

“young and hot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This beach is what I had in mind when I thought of Brazilian beaches. Crowds of young, tan and beautiful young people, walking and strutting. Cool beach bar gives a flavor of Brazilian life.
