#2 of 43 in Outdoors in Armacao dos Buzios
Surrounded by lush native vegetation, Joao Fernandes Beach features crystal clear waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Kayaking and snorkeling gear can be rented at several locations along the shore, so all you need bring is your camera, sunglasses, and lots of sunscreen. Nearby you can visit numerous bars and cafés, serving grilled delicacies prepared with freshly-caught fish, lobster, and shrimp. Stop by any one of a dozen seaside kiosks for a refreshing drink, and mingle with tourists from around the world. To get away from the usual midday crowd, go to the right corner of the beach, which is quieter and a bit more secluded.

  • Very good and quiet Sea Beach for children and who's afraid of rough seas. Recommend restaurants donates hotels that focus on the beach. Great for a family outing.

  • It is the beach which everyone recommended. However it is not the prettiest of Búzios. When we went the beach was too small for the amount of people who had. The place or landscape is very picturesque.
