Great waters

Clean waters, nice beach and good waves! We saw a dog swimming like a pro and we had delicious empanadas from a guy who sells food on the beach. Loved it!

Lovely beach! small drinks bars you can get things from, some sellers on the beach but they do not approach you when you are sitting down which is nice! Sea is rather big waves so would need to be careful. But ver nice soft sand!

Somehow this beach reminds me of Jimbaran in Bali, it offers nice restaurants nearby as well as beach clubs. Nice place for those who like to get some waves. The water is always cold, very nice in hot days!

What an effort TO get the napkins that flew away by the wind. Waw what a face on ons of the girls. Spoiled !! Anyway that happened while waiting 10 minutes for the beer. No coolers... More

This is an awesome beach! We had the good fortune of enjoying warm water ... with the changing currents this beach is often on the 'fresh' side. Lots of space to enjoy the surf.

We always go on summer, kids love the surf and if you go to the left side it is calmer and easier to swim, the best beach on buzios!

New Year's Eve party here should be in everyone's bucket list. Spacious beach with very strong currents. Windy and good long walk from end to end
