One of the best spots in town, Brava Beach offers an almost privet beach with two great bars/clubs: Silk & Rocka! Great food and wine with marvelous view!

We enjoyed our days at this exciting beach. Little booths provide all what is needed for a perfect day!

It is a nice beach, clear water, where you may bring your snorkel and enjoy a surface dive, or even rent a SUP or kayak in order to enjoy the calm ocean.

Great beach in Búzios, not as longs as other beaches , but has plenty of sand space and not as crowded as other beaches. Not much food or other amenities as other beaches, but clean, relaxing and sand space available.
