Edit Spot

This is a great place to see lots of wealthy Cariocas enjoying their weekend away from the hustle-bustle of the city. The waves aren't the best around, but they are fun and are close to the best in Buzios.

The surfing is usually good, the bottom is usually nice. What can destroy a good day of surfing is the wind, but that's not often.

Very good. Good surf and nice chicks. Nice hotels and bars as well.

It’s a nice, fun place, where you can surf during the day and during the night you can have fun at Rock Street (Rua das Pedras).

Additional Info:
On good days you will be able to ride awesome waves, very long and manoeuvrable. From barrels to airs passing through floaters and snap the wave has several sessions. Just go straight to the lip and just


In Armação de Búzios, not very hard to find. The first beach on the right as you drive in.It's very easy, it's the most famous beach in Búzios. There are spots all over the beach. You can choose.
