The beach is worth visiting because it is a big stretch of beach with waves. Though when we went it was freezing water and had little pieces of jelly fish! Not enough to sting, but gave a weird sensation. Don't rule it out, but there...More

A beautiful beach to walk on - clear, shallow water with clean, white sand. A long walk was the perfect end to my trip!

We liked it. There are a few waves but it's not dangerous and won't bother children either. I had a snorkel and I could see a bunch of fish. There are bars but are very expensive. I recommend going outside to eat, prices are much...More

Big beach, enough for everyone to fit without touching each other's toes. Slope to get into the sea is very low, so its safe to go with children, dogs, etc... Surroundings very green and beautiful. Sand clean and beautiful color. Very recommended.

This is one of the biggest beaches in Buzios, so there's lots of room, and lots of beach-goers. No worries, though, find a kiosk at the back of the beach, shake hands with the owner, order up some chairs and, as long as you're eating...More

Despite its cold water, this beach has plenty of room for surfing (right and middle portions) and to take a calm dip (left portion). Try avoiding the beach clubs! Expensive and dirty sand.
