    It is a beach with a beautiful view! It is quite long, and little wide, is ideal for early morning since after noon, the sea rises and there is no beach! For my taste, have put too many umbrellas that although they do not charge them, you have eaten something, and often water cover you. Maybe the SUPER water crystal clear, warm and IDEAL for snorkear!

    Calm sea, like most beaches in Búzios, good for practice of stand up. Vista linda do mirante, great for pictures. It has many restaurants and, of course, very expensive also
