We visited this beach on a weekday, still it was very busy with lots of visitors. As you walk towards the beach, people come towards you and talk very friendly, don't be fooled by that. We were told that the chairs are free to use, come lunch time, we were given a menu card and told that the chairs are... 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).

Just charming beach, lots of green around it, warm and quite waters, with lots of places where to sit and enjoy the caipiriñas. Also you can share your swming with the tortles. To get there is also nice as you can get the "Taxi acuatico" through Rua das Pedras get and unexpensive motor boat to the beach. or a long... More

We tried this beach after a recommendation. We thought it was lovely. Unfortunately it was difficult to hire a sun lounger unless you agreed to have lunch at one of the restaurants. This didn't suit us as we had a large breakfast and wouldn't be eating again to the early evening. We did manage to find one bar that came... More

We were lucky and it was not crowded. Also full of beach hunters but at least they offer comfortable chairs and good service!

Tartaruga (tortuga) Beach is a nice mix of urbanised and wild beach about 10-15' from Buzios City Center. You can choose what you want easily: upon arrival, to the left, sand bars, snorkelling gear for rent and kaiaks. To the right, the furthest you go the wildest it gets. You can even pretend you're alone in an island. If staying... More

The rocks around the corner are worth walking to. Great small cave to crawl into. Secluded. Took the water taxi, fun ride and practical. Normal beach drinks and food.
