Having plenty of lovely beaches in Buzios this is not the one at all. With very quiet waters but too many boats close by this is tiny beach to visit as it is very close to Joao Fernandez and also in the way to the main walk of Buzios.

This beach was close to our accommodation. Lovely back drop of trees and pretty cottages. Able to hire sun loungers at reasonable price and use bar facilities if you want. Nice calm waters and very easy to swim in. If you want a beach with restaurants then maybe this is not for you (although there a few close at hand).... More

Basically it is a harbour beach - pretty, boats at anchor, nice enough but not really a swimming beach. There was some rubbish around.

It is a tiny litlte area that fills up with 50 people on there, no places to hang out aorund there, no bars or anything. I guess it might be nice for local families but for tourists, it is pretty much dead.

the beach was accessible. not so full of people. We enjoyed the happy hour for the drinks nearbye and our hotel was just in front of the beach. Walking distance for everything, restaurant, supermarket, buzios center, etc...

Beautiful little beach within walking distance to town center. Clear water and pretty colorful boats that give the place an idyllic look. Not the kind of beach for people who like long walks, water sports, or a lot besides lying on a mat and relaxing.

We visited Ossos Beach on New Year's Day so it was pretty crowded and there was a lovely laid back, happy vibe about the place. The beach has a back drop of trees with beautiful red flowers, the sand is great and the water is warm and clean. There were many little boats out in the bay but they didn't... More

We travelled to Buzios after a long tour Peru Bolivia Argentina and Brazil ending our long tour resting on Ossos beach was perfect therapy. The beach is very private small and relaxing hire 2 deck chairs a table and parasol for £6.00 and spend the day swimming relaxing sunning and people watching just divine!

Not a big fan of the speech but it's okay if you want to spend the day right on Main Street could just jump in the water so you have easy access to all the bars and restaurants from the main road and booziest but I wouldn't consider it a great beach and spend the day does lots of boats... More

Over 20 beaches most with sheltered bays, soft sand and nice people. At the end of the Bardot boardwalk is Praia da Ossos a small family beach and a fishing village with fresh fish restaurants and small bars, a really friendly spot
