Is the place where the cruise and private yacht stay when in Buzios. Last year 2014 Leonardo DiCaprio stay on the beach in a huge and luxurious boat. Lots... More

I went to Buzios from Rio. I wouldn't call it unmissable. It was ok, we had a boat trip around the island and it was quite fun but the beaches are not that great and the island is just full of shops. There is not much to see.

More a strip of sand by the pier where the cruise ships off load. Fine for a quick dip but not somewhere you would want to spend the day.

This is the most tourist-oriented part of the city. Nice for a walk, but avoid restaurants and spending too much time there.

Lovely views but not for swimming, great photos and restaurants. Go early to watch the fishermen and catches of the day, take photos with BB and jogging.

Buzios is one of the Brazilian cities with the most beautiful set of beaches. A must for anyone who enjoys beaches with clear and calm waters, as João Fernandinho or Ferradura, but with options of beaches with strong waves, as Tucuns beach. Coupled with the daytime leisure, the village offers various nightlife options, such as restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops.... More

it is the heart of Buzios, a beachfront downtown, where Orla Bardot is, surreounded by all the bronze statues, including Kubiyschek and the fishermen over the sea. All the boats come and go from beach to beach from here. gorgeous sunsets, a beach that lives day and night
