The place is amazing. One of the most beautifull beaches I haver been. My suggestion is one: try to get early because as many people try to go the restrict the number of cars can get in so you probably will stop your car far way and walk almost 3km until the beach. There are also almost 300 steps to... More

We have seen many beaches this trip in Brazil and this is one of the best. Clean white sand. Blue water. Lots of people and host activity and umbrella and chairs for hire. Avoid the stress of parking and get a 15 min taxi ride to drop you off . We never went to buzios but heard that these beaches... More

This is one of the newest hotspots of Brazil for tourism. Obviously the sea was the main reason for it. Indeed the water is amazing even being cold. The best way to get here is by plane. Azul flies here! But it costs. But if time is more important than money for you as it is for me then just... More

The beaches are beautiful and clean. Praia Brava is my favorite you have to walk on a rock to be there sometimes you just can see the beach when you are close. This spot are great because sometimes you have the all beach just for you.

The color of the ocean and the white sands are amazing, better to go very early before the crowd comes. The view from up hill is amazing

Fantastic beach with good "barraquinhas" that serve good food and drinks at a reasonable price. Very difficult to get to though, and the sun sets on the other side of the hill, so get there early!
