We went on a half day tour of the peninsula, and arrived at Ferrudura Beach, where we could use the Beach Club and Restaurant. This is a vast sandy beach, with warm sea water, as it is so sheltered. Lovely swimming, and a good atmosphere.

Nothing exceptional about Ferradura beach. It is not as beautiful as the other beaches in Buzios, but it is far less crowded and it is ideal for an early morning or late afternoon run.

Nice Beach, clean and calm water, ideal for swimming. No big waves, and the water can be cold sometimes. But better in every way than Geriba beach wich is overcrowded and with old chairs.

One of the nicest beaches i have been to. The water is calm and the sand inviting. The beach is in a horseshoe and never seems to be crowded like others in Buzios. There are many posada's and hotels around Ferradura. The Cliffside Villa is...More
