Búzios sits just to the east of Rio de Janeiro. Its beauty lies in the waters that lap its 26 white sand beaches. The peninsula used to be a wonderfully sleepy fishing village in the 1960s. Of course, like all hippy hideouts, it's now a slick beachside hang out dotted with gourmet restaurants, upmarket boutiques, and trendy bars. The best places to stay in Búzios vary between tropical hideaways, sleek boutiques and charming little guesthouses.

The peninsula is actually split between three separate old towns which offer lots of different actitivities!

  • Check out the yacht club, it's rather like being in St. Tropez!
  • Stroll and shop the narrow cobblestone streets for beautiful beach clothes.
  • In Rua das Pedras you'll dance until the sun comes up in one of the happening night clubs.
  • One of the 26 pristine white sand beaches will offer you snorkelling, diving, sailing, or beach bronzing.
  • Rocka Beach Lounge will serve you a fantastic sea-food lunch..

Búzios is rather like the Mediterranean of Brazil, it certainly hasn't lost its langourous Portugese influence! Discovered by Brigitte Bardot, there's something really special about it. The best hotels here are of course pretty upmarket, but you'll find a couple of good cheap guesthouses if you're on more of a budget. And, Buzios is only three hours from Rio, so day trips are also a possibility.
