It is a tiny litlte area that fills up with 50 people on there, no places to hang out aorund there, no bars or anything. I guess it might be nice for local families but for tourists, it is pretty much dead.

Beautiful little beach within walking distance to town center. Clear water and pretty colorful boats that give the place an idyllic look. Not the kind of beach for people who like long walks, water sports, or a lot besides lying on a mat and relaxing.

The beach has a back drop of trees with beautiful red flowers, the sand is great and the water is warm and clean. There were many little boats out in the bay but they didn't... More

We travelled to Buzios after a long tour Peru Bolivia Argentina and Brazil ending our long tour resting on Ossos beach was perfect therapy.

Not a big fan of the speech but it's okay if you want to spend the day right on Main Street could just jump in the water so you have easy access to all the bars and restaurants from the main road and booziest but I wouldn't consider it a great beach and spend the day does lots of boats... More

Over 20 beaches most with sheltered bays, soft sand and nice people. At the end of the Bardot boardwalk is Praia da Ossos a small family beach and a fishing village with fresh fish restaurants and small bars, a really friendly spot

Make sure the hotel packs a picnic lunch, not too many food vendors. Nice place to kayak and paddle board. Loved the calmness of this beach
