Wonderful site, the very one that attracted Brigitte Bardot to Buzios for very good reasons! Anchored boats, nice houses, be there at sunset. You will never forget! Not to miss!

It's good just to walk on the side walk. The water is clean but it is very rocky, unsafe for swimming.

I went to Buzios from Rio. I wouldn't call it unmissable. It was ok, we had a boat trip around the island and it was quite fun but the beaches are not that great and the island is just full of shops. There is not much to see.

More a strip of sand by the pier where the cruise ships off load. Fine for a quick dip but not somewhere you would want to spend the day.

This is the most tourist-oriented part of the city. Nice for a walk, but avoid restaurants and spending too much time there.
