Nice beach, divided by a rock in the middle. The left side (where you usually arrive) is located in front of a beach club. In the left corner of this side is the location for the surfers, with a small shore break. On the right side, after an easy climb over the rock, the beach is less crowded, but you... More

It takes only a few minutes longer to walk to this beach than to Praia Joao Fernandes, and it is worth it. It is a much larger beach, less crowded and everything of a better standard. Those who cannot stand the 'heat' of wearing swimwear can proceed across the beach to the next bay Praia Olho de Bol = a... More

Walked here from Buzios but quite along walk especially in the heat. Managed to get a subbed up high overlooking the beach which had plenty of shade - this meant a walk down the path to the beach, but it had the advantage that our spot was still there when the tide came in! Some people had their feet in... More

It is a nice beach, clear water, where you may bring your snorkel and enjoy a surface dive, or even rent a SUP or kayak in order to enjoy the calm ocean.

Great beach in Búzios, not as longs as other beaches , but has plenty of sand space and not as crowded as other beaches. Not much food or other amenities as other beaches, but clean, relaxing and sand space available.

Go to the other side of the rock (to the right). Great views, nice waves, best sand, cold drinks... our favourite beach in Buzios, our kids (under 10y, good swimmers, adventurous water rats) love it! Bring a football and surf/bodyboards.

I found this beach not to be that exiciting at all. It was very windy and loads of bees and wasps around the private area you can book. The beach itself was just a narrow stip of sand. I have no idea why people found this nice. We arrived, stayed for half an hour and left. The resturant there was... More
