Go to the other side of the rock (to the right). Great views, nice waves, best sand, cold drinks... our favourite beach in Buzios, our kids (under 10y, good swimmers, adventurous water rats) love it! Bring a football and surf/bodyboards.

Great beach, divided in 2, the left part with restaurants, hotels facilities and surf, and to the right nature.

I found this beach not to be that exiciting at all. It was very windy and loads of bees and wasps around the private area you can book. The beach itself was just a narrow stip of sand. I have no idea why people found this nice. We arrived, stayed for half an hour and left. The resturant there was... More

A short walk over the rocks away from the pumping music and you are on an empty stunning beach. Water was very calm on all 4 days we visited and the beach was pretty clean.

this is a good beach for surfing and clubbing at Silk Club, surfing is a bit more complicated than Geriba but it is fun still.

Very ordinary windy beach.Visited 5 beaches in Buzios and they were all rubbish quality to be honest.This beach bravo had a restaurant selling fresh oysters but the prices were rip off and too many hawkers going around.Buzios is living of past glories by the looks of it,there are far nicer beaches in RIO and other nearby places

Excellent clubs and restaurants with chaiselongs over the beach, with best view and best food. Oyster bar by the beach and excellent service on the sand. We swam along with turtles and could snorkel around surrounded by sea life. In good days good for surfing. Bring a football and you will have an inmediate team formed by other tourists that... More
