Nice clean sand, big waves, ideal for swimming and tanning. Little bit overcrowded, but if you go to the top of the beach, there is lot of free space. You can get a water taxi to the Buzios centre.

Tartaruga Beach is a bit too crowded, but just go to the end of the beach, there is less people. Water is really warm, the only place I went swim in November in Buzios.

The beach is very clean with few bars. The water is good to dive and the ocean is calm to stay all day. The people are very helpful.

If you can ignore the people from every bar that pester you, this place is fine. It’s a gently shelving fine sand beach with maybe 10 or 12 bars at the back. They know how to make money (R40 for a bowl of fries!) but...More

We arrived here with Acqua Taxi and it was a adventure to us. The beach is very nice, clear, clean and a very warm water, but it´s necessary to take care because there are some areas with stones. It was a great time here, and...More

Buzios has a beach for every taste and everybody! You have to make the rounds and find the one you love ... for me Tartaruga had the perfect water temperature, nice waves & lots of room.

Still one of the better beaches to go for a quieter time. Clean and clear ocean. Not too many kiosks around specially at the left end (when facing the ocean).
