Great taste of brazilian beaches

Lovely beach with warm waters and no waves. Crowded though, you can enjoy caipiriñas at the beach with your feet in the water. Just great

Belíssima praia com águas cristalinas, águas frias e tranquila para crianças nadarem. Com um pequeno espaço de areia, a praia acaba ficando lotada de mesas, mas, no geral, um ótimo local para conhecer e apreciar. A very beautiful beach with crystal clear water, cold and calm waters, ideal to children play. It has a small piece of sand, so, because... More

Cosy beach, quite good vibe but really crowded especially with the tie of the sea. Prefer other beaches like Geriba, where there's more space and as beautiful.

The water was beautiful, very calm. Good for children to swim in. Lots of chairs with umbrellas there's really no room to lay on a towel. You need to pay for chairs, most places if you buy food you get the chair. Great for people watching.

We visited this beach on our last day in Buzios. We were only supposed to go for a few hours and then head to Rio, we ended up staying until sunset. There is a sign when you're leaving the center of Buzios that will point you toward the beach but once you get up into the residential area, it is... More

We absolutely loved this beach! It is one of the best in Buzios and truly lives up to its reputation. It's an inlet or little bay area with a total beach area of about 1/2 mile long and has rock formations on both sides. There are plenty of hotels, mostly pousadas though, or b&b all around this area and neighboring... More

Choose another beach if you want to avoid Argentinians, hahaha! This is the beach where most tourists go in Buzios, as it is close to the area where most hotels, inns and posadas are located, but it is far from being the best. Water is nice but cooler than in other beaches like Azeda and Azedinha, although this one has... More
