Well worth a visit, the beach is clean and water is crystal clear that is full of fish and marine life. There are plenty of locals selling food and drink, which is brilliant value and quality.

Quiet almost secluded beach right by the Colonna Park Hotel, with clear waters and calm enough for beginners to try stand-up paddling or snorkeling with turtles. Between 10 and 12 you sometimes get these ships stopping there and unloading day tourists in the water nearby, can be a little frustrating as they most often disturb the peace of the area.... More

This is a small beach next to Joao Fernandes beach that is reached by stairs. It's really small and when the tide rises you have to go to the rocks o just be confortable resting in the shallow water. But this is the best place of Buzios for snorkeling. You can see from cuttlefishes to sea urchins, fishes of a... More

Nice beach a little bit crowded by all the tourists from neigbooring countries (Argentinians, Chileans, Peruvians...) mostly seniors and families with children, few brazilians the day I've visited...Beside this, worth a visit.

Well worth a visit and you can walk there from the centre. You will pass an old fishing village with some bars and restaurants.

As all the beaches in Buzios it has a beautiful view, but there is too many people here, the sand is thick and too many commerce .

A lovely beach with chairs and umbrellas to rent. Swimming is safe and water clear. The sand is soft and food/drinks are available. Access by water taxi is the best approach, but get there early and leave early as the beach becomes ridiculously crowded later on.

This beach is really beautiful. Small and very nice in the morning ( before 11hrs.). After that gets a bit too busy. There are only two small "restaurants" in the place, both expensive. There are no toilets. The beach itself is really pretty and worth the visit.
