Praia Ferradura

The cove with calm and cold waters is a favorite of families with children. Besides the tranquility, the beach offers a full structure of kiosks on the left corner – in the menus, the choices range from shrimp patties to sea bass stew (moqueca) with coconut milk and palm oil. The fun is guaranteed by the banana-boat rides, kayaking, and sailing.

Praia Geriba

Geribá is one of the key points in Búzios and is a gathering ground for the young crowd. Ideal for surfing, body boarding, footvolley, windsurfing and stand up paddle, in addition to flirting! The buzz is focused in front of the Fishbone Café, on the right corner, which features a bar, restaurant, pizzeria, fish grill and lounge with great music.

Tartaruga Beach

Praia Tartaruga

The beach has calm waters that are usually the warmest in the region since it’s not bathed by the cold currents from Antarctica. Take some time to snorkel along the cliffs of the right corner. Along the long stretch of sand, kiosks for all tastes scatter chairs, and loungers around. The MPB soundtrack ensures total relaxation. Don’t leave before sunset.

The combination of crystal clear waters and diverse marine life makes Búzios a veritable aquarium. The average temperature under water is around 22ºC degrees, while the visibility is about ten meters (during the summer it can go up to 25 meters) - perfect conditions for beginner and veteran divers to enjoy the beauties hidden under the sea.

For scuba diving (using cylinders), one of the best places is the Ilha da ncora, six miles from the coast - about half an hour by boat - where the average visibility is 12 meters and can go up to 25 meters during the summer. The island offers shelter from the winds and currents during most of the year, which ensures clear water - the exception is the month of May, when the winds are stronger and visibility may be affected. Other popular sites are islands Gravatás, Filhote and Ilha Feia.

Another sought after diving site is the nearby town of Arraial do Cabo (a 30 minute drive from Búzios). The town's beaches are among the best in the country for diving.
Búzios is also a paradise when it comes to fine dining, with a mixture of French, Italian, Japanese, Thai... In each, typical flavors and delicacies fit for the most demanding and varied palates. The reason for such diversity is the large number of foreigners who came to spend a few days in town, fell in love, and never left. From their birthplaces, they brought the spices and secrets that enhance the seafood dishes – fish are the flagship of local cuisine, after all, Búzios emerged as a fishing village and is surrounded by beaches on all sides.
