Armacao dos Buzios

Beaches Sightseeing Nightlife

Brazil's St Tropez

Perched on the tip of a peninsula about 175 km (109 mi) east of Rio de Janeiro, the coastal town of Armacao dos Buzios attracts visitors looking to enjoy a beachside getaway without the crowds and chaos of the big city. Tourism in Armacao dos Buzios truly began to flourish in 1964, when actress Brigitte Bardot visited the town--which at the time had no electricity. The crowds soon followed, as did the tourist infrastructure (including electricity) to accommodate them. Nowadays, Armacao dos Buzios' 23 golden sand beaches, clear waters, and lush vegetation make for a relaxing escape from the stresses of city life. Make Armacao dos Buzios central to your Brazil travel plans using our Brazil vacation trip planner.
