The most beautiful sunset

This place is one of the most beautiful sunset that I have seen in my life, the bars and restaurants are so nice, it´s a pity that it´s forbidden music here.

We're fortunate enough to have a restaurant, Gramophone Lounge, at Porto da Barra - just metres away from this beach. The beach itself is a wonderful place to enjoy the afternoon sun and to watch the sunset before enjoying an evening meal. Being on a peninsular it can be a bit breezy but, particularly on a calm day, it's a... More

Best beach for Biking and having a bit of quiet reading yoga meditation. We were staying at Yucas posada, former 1st Wind Surfing place in Brazil and now posada and Events/ Wedding place. Great Beach to Marry with teh Sunset as a background!

I have visited this beach for sailing what made my experience awesome. Wind gets on its right direction here and make a enjoyable experience with this flat sea. There is a couple houses right on the shore and there is a sailing club as well.

Fantástic beach and pier with very cozy and good restaurants at the sea front. Convenient to stay with houses with seafront and good beach walk, only 5 minutes from the rua das pedras, at the city center.

Very pretty beach which continues a long way. On the way you have lots of restaurants, places where you can rent a sup board or go for sailing or a jet ski ride and to do another water sports! I was surprised that the beach is quit quiet! Other beaches in buzios are quit crowdy but this one was perfect!... More

I think that our stay here was as much about the Insignia saving docking fees in Rio, but I'm so glad we came. Beautiful town, beautiful beaches, and they understood my "Brazilian Portuguese for dummies lingo!
