Mirante de Joao Fernandes, Armacao dos Buzios

4.7
#1 of 6 in Nature in Armacao dos Buzios
Far from the maddening crowd you will find Mirante de Joao Fernandes, a lookout point where you can survey the beaches and land. This out-of-the-way trek is worth it for the glorious views of the Joao Fernandes beach. Take a car up to the lookout or rent a cab; the walk is arduous and even dangerous in parts. At the top, you'll find vendors selling snacks and souvenirs, so there is no need to bring supplies. After the lookout, visit the beach below with sunshine and warm waters.

  • The view from the Viewpoint of João Fernandes is simply spectacular. We took the buggy and stopped there, worth every picture.

  • I loved the João Fernandes Beach, however small the extent of sand, the water is less cold than other beaches in Buzios

  • Worth it give a little jump there and enjoy the view of beautiful photos!! Discovered by chance when we were looking for places to park the car to go to the João Fernandes Beach, the sidewalk in front part of the Rotary public parking in the city.

Where to stay in Armacao dos Buzios

Despite its fairly small population of around 25,000, Armacao dos Buzios offers more than 200 accommodations for the visitors who flock here during high season. You can find a wide selection of places to stay on any main street, especially as you move toward the tip of the peninsula. Higher-end hotels tend to be closer to the beach, while budget lodgings are dotted around the center of town. The good news is that even if you stay in one of the more economical guesthouses, you'll never be more than 15 minutes' walk from a range of beaches.
