Low season is better

As any beach in lakes region I recommend to at low season. It's not too busy and you can easily find a place to stay in the sand.

Uma bela praia, com águas frias e claras. Quanto mais nas curvas você estiver, melhor para o banho das crianças. Possui uma boa estrutura de vendas, porém com preços salgados.

Plenty of bars and places to eat along the beach. Grab some açai and a nice cold beer. Lots of people playing foot volley, or going for a run along the beach. Pretty amazing when the sun is going down.

We've stayed in the lounge at the end of the beach. But really beautiful beach, great vibe with the different (temporary) beach bars. Good for all ages and only 20 minutes walking from the city centre.

This beach is just wonderful to spend a day. It's got all the stand up paddle boards, games, beach activity and a great view. The water is not so called compared to other beaches in Buzios, so that's a plus!

This is not the best option around Búzios. The beach is polluted and its very small. It doesn't have good structure either.

It's a great beach overall, and it has all the vendors you need. The water is clean and calm, but it can be a bit cold.

One of my favorite beaches in Buzios. Very calm water, great scenery and a perfect spot to paddleboard. Drinks and snacks are very affordable as well. Overall, great experience!

I actually thought that the water in this bay will be more warm... But I was wrong, like all the other places arround Buzios also here it's very cold to swim. But it doesn't matter because it's such a beautiful view all arround! One of the must see in Buzios!

A beautiful horse shaped beach with approx 1km of sand. Because it is not near downtown Buzios it was surprisingly empty Monday to Friday. There are day time bars and a couple of people selling bikinis etc but they are not in your face all the time. You can hire paddle boards / kayaks / swans (pedalos).
