“Does not live up to the hype”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

There is practically no beach, it is packed with people and there is virtually no sand or room on the sand for you to lie down. The water is on the warm side, I'll grant you that, but because so many people eat there it was dirty. We were there three times because some members of our family were staying close by but would definitely not go to that beach if given the choice

“Great Beach for a 1 day cruise stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We arrived in Buzios for a 1 day cruise stop. We went to Joao Fernandes beach. This beach is rather narrow from the water to the back of the beach which ends at a stone wall separating the beach from a road (not a busy road). The beach is packed with restaurants that set up chairs, small table and umbrellas. The going charge was $20R to for 2 chairs/umbrella or FREE if you consumed food. The beach is full of chairs/umbrellas. I did not see a space if you just wanted to visit independently and spread out your towel.

I recommend when arriving at this beach to just walk the length of the beach and decide which restaurant’s table/chairs you want to use for the day. Don’t jump at the first one. Try to get the vibe of the beach first and then settle in.

We liked this beach. There is a lot of activity and we easily could have spent a few days here.

I hope you find this review helpful!
