  • In my opinion was the beach more linda of Búzios, but so also the more face with regard to parking and food. Crystal clear water, the pleasant temperature, people, fun. You should go early because the tide rises early and then there is almost no beach. If you visit buzios you can not to stop going to this beach. what I recommend is to plan what are the beaches that you want to know, since there are many and that more it should be for them all is do two per day.

  • I don't know if it's the best beach in Buzios, but if it is the busiest, calm waters with good temperature, great gastronomic offer, great seller on the beach. As beach is pretty good, although it is small and is Crown, the tide begins to rise relatively early. Umbrellas and deck chairs free if you eat in a restaurant, average for two R$ 85 not including soft drinks, in terms of dishes quite regular not to say bad, as if it were little long mosquito and flies hovering around your food, for me is better to have lunch in a local out of the beach and there are enough nearby.
