Great beach, divided in 2, the left part with restaurants, hotels facilities and surf, and to the right nature.

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. I have no idea why people found this nice. We arrived, stayed for half an hour and left. The resturant there was... More

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.

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.

Very ordinary windy beach.Visited 5 beaches in Buzios and they were all rubbish quality to be honest.This beach bravo had a restaurant selling fresh oysters but the prices were rip off and too many hawkers going around.Buzios is living of past glories by the looks of it,there are far nicer beaches in RIO and other nearby places

Excellent clubs and restaurants with chaiselongs over the beach, with best view and best food. Oyster bar by the beach and excellent service on the sand. We swam along with turtles and could snorkel around surrounded by sea life. In good days good for surfing. Bring a football and you will have an inmediate team formed by other tourists that... More

NICE beach if you do not mind to head over to the very right side. Expensive lounge access with mat rental for the HIP crowd of Rio. Strong currents/ waves, not recommendable to families

Across the island from Buzios town this little gem does tend to get crowded, great waves for surfing depending on the day and conditions but not a great beach for kids due to wave size and currents. Beach tends to fill up as it is constricted between two spits of land, quite a few restaurants and bars that offer lounge... More
