Lovely tiny beach

We loved this small beach located next to Joao Fernandez. It has 3 nice beach bars, great views and the sea is calm.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. Cristal clear water ideal for snorkeling. If you just like to enjoy the sun, be aware that this beach is full of chairs and umbrellas, with the staff from the stalls pushing you food and drinks all the time (very expensive).

I have never seen such a mess on any beach before and wonder that people are ready to pay 50 Real for a simple chairI and a parasol, but OK, some people live hundreds of kilometers from the cost which may be the explanation. Between the two major sections of the beach we found some low rocks on both sides... More

Well worth a visit, the beach is clean and water is crystal clear that is full of fish and marine life. There are plenty of locals selling food and drink, which is brilliant value and quality.

Quiet almost secluded beach right by the Colonna Park Hotel, with clear waters and calm enough for beginners to try stand-up paddling or snorkeling with turtles. Between 10 and 12 you sometimes get these ships stopping there and unloading day tourists in the water nearby, can be a little frustrating as they most often disturb the peace of the area.... More

This is a small beach next to Joao Fernandes beach that is reached by stairs. It's really small and when the tide rises you have to go to the rocks o just be confortable resting in the shallow water. But this is the best place of Buzios for snorkeling. You can see from cuttlefishes to sea urchins, fishes of a... More

Nice beach a little bit crowded by all the tourists from neigbooring countries (Argentinians, Chileans, Peruvians...) mostly seniors and families with children, few brazilians the day I've visited...Beside this, worth a visit.

Well worth a visit and you can walk there from the centre. You will pass an old fishing village with some bars and restaurants.
