“Small, pretty but not the best beach in Buzios”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Enticed by the possibility of some surfing, unfortunately the day we chose was not ideal for this but a pretty beach nonetheless. Unfortunately the baraccas were a bit tired and dirty and the nature of the beach area leaves little space to sit without fear of your belongings washing away and also, for some reason, the charge for a guarda sol and some chairs was double everywhere else we had tried in Buzios (and Rio for that matter). The redeeming feature of this beach was the outstanding food and service at the small but busy beach bar above, RockA. The lobster salad was sublime and well complimented with the soft, warm wonderful codfish balls. Not cheap but by far the best meal we have had in a long while and the best beach lunch ever!

“nice”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

As many of the other beaches, the landscape was unbelievably beatiful. And unlike of most of the beaches in town, the waves were daring. Almost imposible to find some shadow
