“Beach for locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

What a great spot at the top end of Buzios. Nice for snorkelling and just hanging out with friends/family.

“Good for swimming and snorkeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

Joao Fernandes is a nice and not so crowded beach, with good swimming possibilities and good for snorkeling. The water is quiet so not suitable for surfing (you need to go to the other part of the peninsula for that). A couple of places rent chairs, umbrellas and canoes. If you rent a chair, you are expected to order a drink or food and you will pay a service charge. A nice option is to swim to Joao Fernandinho beach and back!

“Joao Fernandinho big brother”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

as it name says it is a bigger version of Fernandinho Beach, and all that it consecuences, a very public nice beach with light sand and blue sea...some houses, more bars, restaurants and a lot of people offering something to drink, to eat, to seat, to tatoo, or to play oversea and underit, you have paddleboards and snorkel rentals. A thin line of shore decently crowded, with music and noise, very brazilian

“No waves, good for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Beautiful and green sea, very calm, there'´s a lot of tends where you can seat and eat and stay all day enjoying the beach. Some of this restaurants only allow you tu use de chairs if you have lunch therem what i think it's not a problem. From Joao Fernandes you can take an aquatic cab and go to another beautiful beaches.
