No waves, not dangerous, rocks you can walk on. We went late in the day, to avoid the crowds. Worked out beautifully!

Great out of the way beach no big waves get there early as it packs up with families. If you buy food you get a chair and umbrella for free and the food is worth it. We had the fish that must have been caught...More

If you travel with kids and elderly people, Ferradurinha is the place for you! Very calm waters and somewhat warmer that the other beaches near by. Try to find accomodations at the left side of Geriba Beach because by doing so, you will be near...More

Fantastic stay at these beaches in Buzios. The small city of Buzios was once Brigitte Bardot's paradise. The location is a trendy one in Rio. Not sure about safety considering the crisis in the state in this 2018.

You can take a small side street from Geriba to get to this small beach. You reach it only walking. Since it's so small, there aren't any bars or people selling drinks and stuff. There's a small place half a block from the beach, on...More

This beach is really small so it gets crowded fast. The water is calm and good for the kids. There are a lot of water activities, such as SUP and Kaiak. The food is very expensive, around R$ 120,00 for a plate to 2. The...More

The best beach to see turtles. It has normal temperature water but clear crystal color water. It has no waves so it’s easily to snorkel on it and you can rent STUP or kayak to get a little bit inside. The beach is a kind...More

The beach is good, the food is veeery expensive and takes forever to get ready! The stand up paddle practice is cheap, so I recommend it (try some discount for 2 or more people). Regarding the beach, the water was very cold this time of...More

There's a long time that I visit Buzios and Ferradurinha continues to be my favorite beach. Calm place, without waves, good for SUP practice and kayak. Nice place for couples and families. The rent of chairs is available on the beach. It's not the best...More

The beach was so beautiful, tucked away in a little cove. We went in July (Brazil's winter) so the water was freezing. Would love to come back in their summer.

I guess your ship will be close to the main port, so, it´s possible to get a taxi from there. You can also take an Uber. I already saw turtles there, but it doesn´t happen all the time. It´s possible to see them only if you... More
