Buzios, the paradise peninsula
Just a short two-hour drive northeast of Rio de Janeiro takes you to an idyllic tropical paradise where sun and fun, as well as rest and relaxation, await you on the more than 20 beautiful beaches that grace the charming peninsula of Buzios. From late in December through Carnival in February, Buzios bursts its seams with travelers from all over the world, who follow native Brazilians to one of the most precious pieces of real estate off the Atlantic coast.
The peninsula of Buzios was discovered by the famous French actress, Brigitte Bardot, while on holiday with her Brazilian boyfriend, in the 1960’s. Since then, it has grown into a very popular destination for international tourists, as well as for some of Brazil’s most famous television personalities, all the while still keeping its original charm as a sleepy little fishing village.
Accommodations. Accommodations on Buzios run the gamut, from tiny hotels and inns to larger hotels offering all the amenities. But to truly take advantage of all that Buzios has to offer, a stay at one of the many small buziosspictures boutique hotels will serve you best. Some of the more sophisticated boutique hotels offer beautifully appointed rooms, individualized service, international gourmet dining, and some of the most beautiful views of the turquoise and blue waters surrounding the peninsula. Nestled among the lush tropical greenery, these getaways are perfect when you want privacy and serenity; when you need to just escape, as Bardot did so may years ago.
The Beaches. The 23 beaches of the Buzios peninsula each have their own distinct personalities and offer every imaginable water sport, from diving, to wind surfing, to boating and more. The most popular beaches include Geriba, Ferradura and Tartaruga, where you’ll find the rich and beautiful of Brazil soaking up the sun and playing in the surf. Joao Fernando Beach caters to the rich Argentineans who come back year after year, giving the beach a more international feel, while the Jose Goncalves Beach attracts nature lovers seeking to enjoy the beauty and diverse wildlife of the peninsula.
Night Life and Festivals. You’ll find a lively nightlife in Buzios during the summer months with many local restaurants and bars offering up great Brazilian cuisine long into the night. Live music spills from the many bars and restaurants that line the beaches and that make up the famous Rua das Pedras in the Centro district of Buzios. In addition to all the activity in the summer months, Buzios also hosts an annual Jazz and Blues Festival in July which lasts a full week, and offers up some of the greatest talent in Brazil. Late in November, you can catch films from many countries around the world at the popular Buzios Cine Festival.
Cuisine. Regional and various international cuisines are offered up side by side in Buzios. Here is where you can sit down to a small buffet savoring regional delights such as the famous feijoada (hearty bean and meat stew served over rice) and seasonal seafood cooked the Brazilian way. Or you can treat yourself to at any one of the many restaurants serving international fare such as French, Italian, Thai and even Moroccan cuisines.
When planning your next trip to Brazil, keep in mind the charming peninsula of Buzios, where you’ll find year round tropical breezes, peace and serenity around every corner, and undoubtedly the friendliest people in the world.
