  • We went by a friend who reported that the Beach had good structure. Actually there are several kiosks. And that's it. To access the beach was closed to car entry so we stopped and we had to walk quite far to reach. On the beach restaurants/bars have very expensive prices. We pay 40 dollars in a caipivodka a vodka that was clearly made with a national, grainy. Simple snacks with cost of 100 reals. Price we pay in much better dishes in restaurants known from rua das pedras. Even about the natural beauty of the place. The beach is much worse than other like Horseshoe (which was a great experience).

  • That's one of the best Beach of búzios certainly. These days that we couldn't see the fish already from the raza which was a separate attraction mainly for my nephew. They also have restaurants that offer Chair/table and beach umbrella if you're snacking. It's a difference that always lurk. Go on a sunny day, the water was cold, that is, the temperature was great. Diving is also excellent.
