Pretty, walk the rocks

The rocks around the corner are worth walking to. Great small cave to crawl into. Secluded. Took the water taxi, fun ride and practical. Normal beach drinks and food.

This beach of Buzios is a beautiful paradise of calm and warm waters and coarse sand. The middle of the beach has a division of rocks that are inhabited by a wonderful variety of sea creatures. This place is great for snorkeling and if you're lucky you can even see turtles swimming with you! You can reach it walking, but... More

Rather typical Buzios beach full of cafe's but here they are rather more overpriced with the worse value of all the beach restaurants we visited. The worse one is Bar do Raphael. 20 USD for 15 tiny fried shrimp was a total rip off. Beach itself is nice if tou get there before 9 and get a nice spot.

Ok, it was a nice beach and it was fun getting there in the boat taxi, but I didn't expect the tide to come in the middle of the day so that there was in fact no beach there!!. We're English and perhaps Brazilians or other nationalities like being squeezed in to a bar, but that was not a choice... More

The beach is nice and, if you walk away from the entrance, it gets wider and not so crowded. You can rent canoes, kayaks, etc... or just play soccer or snorkel. The attendants at the last bar/concession were extremely friendly and the food they offered was good. You pay for food and you get a beach umbrella and chairs; that... More

We spent a day here and loved it. It is busier and more commercial than Azeda and there are lots of bars to choose from. You can use the beds and tables in the bars for free but of course will be encouraged to buy drinks/food. Alternatively you can walk further down for a free spot but without bed/umbrella. We...

Sunday's when cruiseliners are anchored in Buzios, this beach is packed. Really too full in our opinion. The clear water and view is nice.
