Foca Beach, Armacao dos Buzios

4.3
#17 of 32 in Parks in Armacao dos Buzios
A rocky, narrow beach with crystal clear water and patches of fine sand, Foca Beach does not conform to the norm of Brazilian beaches. Something a little bit different, this beach is notable for its natural pools, starkly beautiful scenery, and deserted feel. Take the load off with a paddle among the many turtles that make this beach’s waters their home.

  • The beach is beautiful as most people describe here. However it is a deserted and very dangerous. We got there around 8 A.M.. The place was empty. We left the car in the parking lot and we went to the beach. For a small trail of about 2 minutes. We were there for about 40 minutes. When we got back we had a sad surprise: our car with the glass lift broken and some stolen objects. In an attempt to turn off the alarm, broke the glass too. To observe the ground of the parking lot, we noticed several broken glass all over the parking space .... ie: this is a practice common on this beach. After a few minutes, while we were still taking the glass from inside the car, the boy in the parking lot. He confirmed that us it happens all the time there. And that the best time to go is after 10 a.m. when it's busier. Honestly not nominate this beach because of fright and prejudice that we had.

  • Deserves the ride, is a beautiful beach, but without structure, good for a walk, take pictures, it's very small and escondidinha. For children is not recommended because it is Rocky and vegetation.

  • Small beach with plenty of stones, but a wonderful natural beauty. It's not too crowded (I went in early January) and there's no kiosk or stalls or something for sale. So, if you want to spend the day, take your own consumption (and later, to preserve the clean and beautiful as was). I think a good place to spend a turn maximum. The "parking lot" (stop the car on the sidewalk in a corner that fits a half-dozen cars) is paid, equal to the rest of the city. Worth the visit!!

  • The beach is wonderful. The most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Has natural paddling pool for children. Tip: don't go alone, because it's kind of desert.
