Foca Beach, Armacao dos Buzios

4.0
#16 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.

  • Beautiful location but risky meeting. Constantly vehicles left in place, to visit, have your broken glass for theft of belongings inside of it. The ground of the parking lot is full of broken glass broken into vehicles. No one in my pousada informed of this danger, so I think it's important to warn.

  • Beach right next to the beach. Went to the seal walking from the Center, and a quiet walk. I arrived early and I had almost no one down there, just the guard that is close to where the cars park. Who has difficulties of locomotion can be more complicated down and up, but if you're accompanied will be peaceful. I found that and one of the most beautiful beaches of Buzios, beautiful and pretty small. There is a small and inconvenient problem ... The water and the coldest I've ever felt in my life, I thought the coldest of all that I went to Buzios. Not to be relaxing in the water around you and the beach to take a picture and leave, so to meet even ... Although when I was leaving already had people riding a tent, lol. I think the staff is already familiar with ice-cold water. Worth go and take lots of pictures.

  • Looks like an aquarium or a painting. Small and accessible only with the lowest tide. And there's a guy who sells beer. Excellent. Not to be missed.
