Walking by this street you will be close to the beach, in some places you can see the blue ocean, buty also nice to see some fashion stores (mainly for swimming, of course) and very good restaurants where you can taste local sea food.

I always love strolling through the shops here, there is always something to buy! Of course, a bit pricey given that it is a tourist area, but worth seeing.

A MUST, when in Búzios. Lots of interesting shops, restaurants, and people watching - where you hear many foreign languages, and the sound of music from local musicians - there's always something happening on Rua das Pedras!

Worth visiting for shopping or drinking eating etc. Taxis are plentiful from the rank but traffic very heavy going in. At new year this is very very busy so be prepared. Get a table for drinks and then let the world go by. Some good shops here but browse when it's quieter.

We loved Rua das Pedras. Lots of small shoppings with hand made souvenirs. Great prices. There we bought all our small gifts to take home.
