Nice, but short

It is a nice beach, clear water, where you may bring your snorkel and enjoy a surface dive, or even rent a SUP or kayak in order to enjoy the calm ocean.

We enjoyed our days at this exciting beach. Little booths provide all what is needed for a perfect day!

Great beach in Búzios, not as longs as other beaches , but has plenty of sand space and not as crowded as other beaches. Not much food or other amenities as other beaches, but clean, relaxing and sand space available.

Go to the other side of the rock (to the right). Great views, nice waves, best sand, cold drinks... our favourite beach in Buzios, our kids (under 10y, good swimmers, adventurous water rats) love it! Bring a football and surf/bodyboards.

I found this beach not to be that exiciting at all. It was very windy and loads of bees and wasps around the private area you can book. The beach itself was just a narrow stip of sand.

A short walk over the rocks away from the pumping music and you are on an empty stunning beach. Water was very calm on all 4 days we visited and the beach was pretty clean.

Praia Brava is a beautiful beach in Buzios, that should be visited by all travellers visiting Buzios. It is recommendable to have access to a car for easier access.

this is a good beach for surfing and clubbing at Silk Club, surfing is a bit more complicated than Geriba but it is fun still.
