  • The Turtle Beach, as well as most of the beaches of Buzios, has a narrow strip of sand and calm waters. The advantage is that the water is usually warmer than the other beaches. The Turtle Beach has the AquaTáxi service, and you can access it this way several other beaches of the island. The tents are hot and the price a little lower than other beaches.

  • In my opinion, the best for us. Small beach sheltered to the warm waters, where you can extend his towels. Private parking nearby for 5 or 10 reals small typical and cheap restaurant at the beginning of the road.

  • very nice beach have many paradores, looking for which you like most and settle there. generally do not charge you the umbrella or the deck if you eat there. you do not install far ahead because the water rises very fast...
