A beautiful beach to walk on - clear, shallow water with clean, white sand. A long walk was the perfect end to my trip!

We liked it. There are a few waves but it's not dangerous and won't bother children either. I had a snorkel and I could see a bunch of fish. There are bars but are very expensive. I recommend going outside to eat, prices are much...More

This beach near Buzios center facilitates great beach (lounge) bars like Fish Bone. You can sit on the beach beds for free when you order a drink or food. Most bars are open till 18:00, soon after this time it will be dark there. You...More

Big beach, enough for everyone to fit without touching each other's toes. Slope to get into the sea is very low, so its safe to go with children, dogs, etc... Surroundings very green and beautiful. Sand clean and beautiful color. Very recommended.

Lovely place to spend a day. Choose a restaurant/bar and use their shade/seating/sunbeds (free for for customers) or rent beach chairs and umbrellas and just watch beach life unfold. We chose to base ourselves at Fish Bone (beach bar/restaurant)

This beach is really famous, but it’s not so beautiful, in fact, it’s ordinary. There are no restaurants once it’s a residence area, but there are some tents that sell some expensive food ( around R$ 120,00 per plate to 2 people). Also you have...More

This is one of the biggest beaches in Buzios, so there's lots of room, and lots of beach-goers. No worries, though, find a kiosk at the back of the beach, shake hands with the owner, order up some chairs and, as long as you're eating...More

Despite its cold water, this beach has plenty of room for surfing (right and middle portions) and to take a calm dip (left portion). Try avoiding the beach clubs! Expensive and dirty sand.

Geribá is a beautiful open beach, where lots of people go to surf, as waves can be quite big. Although the sea is known as dangerous (it's the beach with the biggest number of life guards in Búzios), it's always crowded and with kiosks and...More
