Fantastic stay at these beaches in Buzios. The small city of Buzios was once Brigitte Bardot's paradise. The location is a trendy one in Rio. Not sure about safety considering the crisis in the state in this 2018.

You can take a small side street from Geriba to get to this small beach. You reach it only walking. Since it's so small, there aren't any bars or people selling drinks and stuff. There's a small place half a block from the beach, on...More

This beach is really small so it gets crowded fast. The water is calm and good for the kids. There are a lot of water activities, such as SUP and Kaiak. The food is very expensive, around R$ 120,00 for a plate to 2. The...More

The beach was so beautiful, tucked away in a little cove. We went in July (Brazil's winter) so the water was freezing. Would love to come back in their summer.

Búzios has several beaches and Ferradurinha is one you have to visit and spend some time. The colours of the water in contrast with white sand is very nice. The name refers to the shape of the beach as it looks a little horseshoe.

I guess your ship will be close to the main port, so, it´s possible to get a taxi from there. You can also take an Uber. I already saw turtles there, but it doesn´t happen all the time. It´s possible to see them only if you... More
