Plenty of bars and places to eat along the beach. Grab some açai and a nice cold beer. Lots of people playing foot volley, or going for a run along the beach. Pretty amazing when the sun is going down.

We've stayed in the lounge at the end of the beach. But really beautiful beach, great vibe with the different (temporary) beach bars. Good for all ages and only 20 minutes walking from the city centre.

This beach is just wonderful to spend a day. It's got all the stand up paddle boards, games, beach activity and a great view. The water is not so called compared to other beaches in Buzios, so that's a plus!

This is not the best option around Búzios. The beach is polluted and its very small. It doesn't have good structure either.

It's a great beach overall, and it has all the vendors you need. The water is clean and calm, but it can be a bit cold.

A beautiful horse shaped beach with approx 1km of sand. Because it is not near downtown Buzios it was surprisingly empty Monday to Friday. There are day time bars and a couple of people selling bikinis etc but they are not in your face all...More

Hola. No recuerdo haber visto deportes. La playa es linda pero de agua bien helada. Para disfrutar el agua son mejores las playas del borde norte
