Too overcrowded and no facility to shower, nearby restaurants are dreadful with very poor hygiene and the usual overpriced food.

Give me the West Indies anytime

João Fernandes is a crowded yet unbeliveable beach. The trick is to get there a little earlier than the crowd (about 10-11 AM should do) and secure a little beach space for you. The beach has no waves and normally has great sea temperature (but not always).

I think it's the best in Búzios. You can do great snorkelling in a boat-secured area about 50 meters from the shore, with great sealife to observe. You can see turtles, great amount of fish and of different species, in a depth of about 4 meters or even shallower, which makes it very easy even to oberve it from the surface. Very popular spot for that.

Additionally you can do great stand-up surfing, with different spots to see. My favourite beach in Búzios for sure. Great for all ages.

the best beach in Buzious
clean, fresh and very overcrowded
snorkeling!
really hard to find a spot for a towel
it is better to travel from other beaches on a boat taxi.

The scenario is great but almost no sand and full of people. I recommend other beaches in Buzios with less people.

We always ended up in the last bar at the end of the beach. They have a great dish with sea fruit. You can also do a swim to the beach on the other side of the rock.
