Very commercial beach. They get upset if you want to sit but not eat at their restaurants. Far better options close by.
Buzios is one of the most memorable places I have been to. Lush and amazingly pretty beaches. Most beaches are beautifully hidden and need to be hiked to. This made for a lovely adventure of sighting pretty beaches.
We didn’t allow the restaurant “greeters” to bother us. We simply said no and kept walking. They were always polite. Once on beach we enjoyed the crystal clear warm water. Great swimming, stand up paddle boards, kayaks etc. Also had to say no often to the roaming merchants-from…
This braço is the clenest close to downtown Buzios. There are no waves só its great for small kids, quite crowded though.
We loved this small beach located next to Joao Fernandez. It has 3 nice beach bars, great views and the sea is calm.
