  • João Fernández I find it more difficult to qualify beach but has very marked pros and cons. The water is calm and even though he has stones to put, is only in small areas, you look and you can get quiet. Water is not only the warmest (by far) of Buzios but also by the clearest scandal. It is the only one that just got me already I saw fish that swim near the shore, so many are going snorkeling (I recommend it). The beach is long but narrow, and the big problem is that it is the more popular Buzios. This makes sure the narrow Beach is occupied by 90% (without exaggeration) by deck chairs and parasols of the Inns and restaurants there. This makes that if you do not think to use them but throw yourself by your means in the sand, you will really be very complicated to find place, is therefore advisable go well early. It is filled with people (by commenting that it is the most popular) and that I was at the end of March, January must be unbearable - the worst in my case was that the sea grows as it is the only beach where I had to leave because he literally stopped having beach. I.e. you are growing and taking you down to the bottom until around 1 pm we already had to go because there was no more beach. Not returned, or more capable later water fell and returned to have Beach, but while I was from early in the morning, it was filled with people and the sea grew so much that no longer could be lying on the sand. It's to know by commenting the water, but certainly I will never stay to go to this beach every day by the quilombo of people.

  • It is the more expensive of buzios and less beach. You should if or use umbrellas and deck chairs from the premises of the beach as the tide rises early. The places to eat are very expensive. It is better to eat in a restaurant that is cheaper. The Sun is going early and these bonding with people of next

  • Well it's only staff looking for the beach by Google or see a photo and it is that. To my personally I do not like. 5mts of sand from the sea up to the breakwater and Beach much of measures not be put 100mts from long... In a nutshell it is very small and uncomfortable, at least with my partner I would never.
