“One of the best beaches in Buzios”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012 via mobile

Although there are several very nice beaches in Buzios, Brava beach was our absolutely favorite. Water is not so warm as in The beaches of the other side (Tartaruga, Joao Fernandez) but still very nice. Very calm and relaxed. Not many vendors, nobody forcing you to buy stuff to eat. Wonderful.

“blue water....with big waves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

brava is probably the strongest beach in buzios. the waves are big but not over powering. it's usually not that packed so you can easily find a spot.
the beach itself is a nice size...nice and wide. the sand is fine but not powdery white.
the surrounding are beautiful....nice rock and mountain formations.

“Great waves”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Great waves at this local beach. Not very crowded. Great day resort there and pretty sketchy local bar/beach stand at the entrance (not recommended).
