Small and friendly beach, with a lovely little white church on the headland and lots of boat activity to watch (separated from swimmers with buoys). The sea is warm and calm and perfect for swimming.

In this place you can see a very nice sunset, the beach is near of Buzios Center and You can stay very quiet observing the sunset.

Really small beach with a lot of boats. Nice to spend a few hours but not a real beach... swimming is almost impossible. Beach itself is tiny, 1 row of chairs and a little bit of space around it.

Really cute beach, where you can enjoyed the caipirinha while tanning. We did the stand up paddle and went to the next beach with it. From the beach, we easily walked to the city center, restaurants and bars for the nights. It is a really nice beach to stay for a week.

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.
