We spent 4 nights in Buzios and had a wonderful time. That being said, we expected more from the beaches. They do not compare to the Caribbean and honestly we preferred the beaches in Rio-i.e Ipanema and even Copacobana. The Buzios beaches do have amazing views and are special in their own way. The city is worth visiting for the evenings on rua de pedras, the more low-key atmosphere, and the beaches combined. Our favorite beach was Geriba and Ferrudinha. Ferradura, which was where our guest house was was nice as well. Make sure you eat in town as opposed to the beach restaurants (food is fried, over-priced, and pales in comparison to the quality of food in town although it is more convenient).
