Buzios – Brazil
Fifty years ago Buzios was a plain small fisherman village. Than it was discovered by Brigitte Bardot and her Brazilian partner and became within short famous. No building is allowed more than two floors in this gorgeous vacation resort. Strict building regulations apply for hotels. Thanks to these regulations Buzios has preserved its charm in spite of lots of tourists.
Especially at weekends and during high season it is very lively. There are many boutiques and Buzios night life is known all over Brazil. Center of all is located in the "Rua das Pedras", a beautiful stone road of about 700 meters lenght. Here and in the adjacent roads most of restaurants, bars and discos are located.
It is a truly beautiful place that is well worth a visit. If you are the type of person more used to holidaying in British seaside resorts or staying in gatwick airport hotels for business trips, then you are in for a treat. If you do visit for a day, it will be an experience you won't forget in a long time."
Búzios has more than 20 different pretty tropical beaches, the most recommended is:
Praia Ferradura beach in Buzios, the most beautiful beach
Imagine the letter C and you will get an idea of Praia Ferradura's very nice shape. In fact, this is exactly the shape of Praia Ferradura if viewed from above. Because of this shape Ferradura translated means horse shoe. The result of this shape is that this beach has calm waters, which generally are the warmest in the region, since the cold currents from Antarctica do not flow here. This coast proves ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling.
Ferradura's Beach Activities
Swimming, sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, walking and running on the beach, sight seeing walk around Ferradura.
There are beach restaurants at Ferradura where you can eat fresh fish, oysters and enjoy some "brazilian caipirinhas".
