Brazil: Buzios

Búzios is an upmarket beach resort of three settlements on a delightful, rocky peninsula of white-sand crescent coves three hours’ drive east from Rio. Revealed to the world by Brigitte Bardot, it does indeed resemble somewhat a chic Mediterranean seaside town, with swish villas, Portuguese style cobbled streets, trendy boutiques and colonial pousadas. Offshore are a number of little islands blanketed with lush foliage. Nowadays popular with the Brazilian jet set and foreign visitors alike, it offers a full beach holiday experience, with water sports, elegant cuisine and a busy nightlife.

What our experts say

Búzios is on a peninsula and offers great snorkelling opportunities to remote and popular beaches.  It has its own micro-climate, with many more hours of sunshine than Rio and far less rain.  We went off-season when it was very quiet, but there are plenty of cliff walks and even in winter there are days when it is warm enough to sit on the sands. It's a very popular destination for Brazilians and Argentinians during the holiday season (Dec-Mar) when it can be heaving, with a party atmosphere (albeit chic, its too expensive for ravers...)
