“beach for boaters..not swimming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

this beach displays some of the greatest views of buzios and captures the essence of what buzios is about.
the beach is lined with small fishing boats...not to mention the cruise ships in the back drop.
the water itself self sports a greenish clear hue and very calm.
i really have not seen may swimmers there for it's more for fishermen

“Great place, need to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Buzios is a great place, with many beaches to choose from, and loads to do. Lots of shops, boutiques and restuarants. We had a house in the Centro and this was fantastic. We could self cater or eat out. The grocery stores, veggie shops and butcheries were great and helpful. A lovely relaxing place to go. Easily accessible from Rio. We caught a bus from Novo Rio, R$36-00pp, great, comfortable.

“Always a good choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

January 2011 was the last time I visited Buzios, but not the first one. I´ve been there countless times and I can never get tired. Buzios and its visitors wake up late. Fancy stores are open in the afternoon and close very late at night (around modnight sometimes), so that people can spend the day on the beach and still go shopping.. Restaurants are nice and sometimes expensive. Discos are crowded with beautiful people. Leave your watch at home, you won´t need it.
