Crystal clear waters and trendy eateries are abundant on the green peninsula of Buzios, just a few hours north of Rio de Janeiro.
Around Buzios you will find a multitude of beaches, some of the best in Brazil with seas ranging from calm, crystal-clear snorkelling waters to more powerful rollers, more ideal for surfers. This area has changed a lot since Bridgette Bardot retreated here in the 1960’s, in those days it was a tranquil fishing area. Now trendy bars and up-market boutique hotels litter this beach retreat favoured by urbanites to escape the hustle and bustle of Rio de Janiero.  One of our favourite places to stay are Casas Brancas and Insolito.  This is a great destination for a Brazil Family Holiday.

Out and about in Buzios

It does get fairly busy in Buzios, but you can easily drive here from Rio de Janerio, making it a great location to end your Brazil adventures with a bit of time on a beach.

Where to stay

There are so many options for good accommodation in Buzios. One of our favourites is located close to the peaceful waters of the Ferradura beach; the Insolito is a boutique property with lush green gardens, all the mod cons and great views over the bay.
