While in Buzios, going to the Ponta da Lagoinha is a must, especially with active kids. Try going during lower tides to take full advantage of the area as some rocks might be covered by water during high tide. Besides the crashing waves and incredible vista, you'll find beautiful rock formations and info panels explaining the geological particularities of the... More

Ponta da Lagoinha is one of those places where the complex geological processes have capriciously gifted us with this natural jewel. I have only seen such beautiful sea cost formation in places like the Madeira Island, Hawaii and Galapagos. Absolutely worth visiting in Buzios!

I remember Lagoinha beach since i was a child when Buzios used to receive artists to sing at this place. Surrounded by hills and vegetation is a perfect natural theater area to observe the ocean and the strong waves banging against the big rocks. The splash of the water forms natural pools and small crystal clear beaches, where you can... More

Took a walk to this beach and it was well worth the effort. Stunning rocks to wander around in. It is unlike any other beach on the peninsula, we sat and watched the sea for quite a while and only saw a handful of people come here. Very peaceful for a few hours visit.

The beaches were pretty busy in early January. We walked to this point from Ossos. Well worth the effort. A beautiful place to look and listen. We only saw about 10 visitors in the two hours we stayed.

Imagine standing on the top of the Himalayas admiring the sea. Then you dive and go for a swim. This is absolutely possible in Ponta da Lagoinha, in Buzios, Brazil, just 1,30h off driving north from Rio de janeiro; a piece of rock of 500 million years old that in those day was just a part of the Himalayas mountains....
