This area is parallel to a beautiful beach. This is a street lined with shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars. We found the locals to be very friendly and not at all pushy like you find in many resort areas.

Do not recommend you wife to wear high-healed shoes if you invite her to dinner in one of the many restaurants in Rua das Pedras (Stone Street) which has its name after the very uneven and big cobblestones. The street has a mix of shops and places to eat varying from street kitchens to smal restaurants, many with tables in... More

Great area to walk around. Nice shops, bars and restaurants. Opens up in the evening, after 17:00, and stays open late.

Of course the whole village of Buzios is rather touristy, but the Rua das Pedras is at the top. There are some nice shops, but these are all very expensive. The rest are restaurants. The sidewalk is often blocked by the restaurants, forcing you to walk on the street with its uneven pavement. Most of the side streets and some... More

Rua das pedras is a mix of restaurants, pubs and shopping. During the day it's nice to go to have some food and buy clothes or souvenirs. During the night you're still able to do the same things, however there are night clubs and bars to enjoy a little bit of Buzios night.

This small district is geared for tourism. It's set up perfectly for pedestrians, and there are many shops and restaurants to visit. The ocean is right there.

Buzios is my passion, maybe because the style remember French Riviera and Amalfi Coast, the price is similar between 2 cities but the warm water and colour are excellent. There are cops but it´s necessary take care with personal objects.

This is a very cozy spot. It's best in the weekend at night. There is lots of restaurants and the beaches are nearby. This fits for both families and party people! Buzios also generally fells very safe.
