Day 1:

Upon arrival in Buzios, be enchanted by Casas Brancas’ ocean views of the Bay of Buzios. After check-in, enjoy a tropical and refreshing Brazilian drink at the bar or at the pool overlooking the Bay of Buzios. This is an incredible view anytime of the day and sunset is an especially precious time to watch, enjoy, and capture beautiful videos and photos. If you are in a deluxe room or Master Suite you have your own exclusive and private balcony to observe this view of the ocean in romantic privacy. In the evening we recommend dining at one of the fine gourmet restaurants along Rua das Pedras (Stone Streets) which specialize in a variety of excellent cuisine from around the world.    

Day 2:

Begin your day exploring Azeda and Azedinha Beach. Hire an aqua taxi at Ossos Beach and after a beautiful ride, you will be at Azeda Beach. After just a short walk up the hill you will have a stunning view of the beach; a photographer’s paradise! At Azeda and Azedinha Beaches there are plenty of places to enjoy some Brazilian pastries, fried local fish, salads, and tropical drinks. Caipirinha and caipirosca are two traditional Brazilian drinks worth a try.  

After a full morning at the beaches, you might catch another taxi to Joao Fernandes Beach.  Many water activities like snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding are available here. Joao Fernandes Beach also features tasty beach restaurants and live music. This beach is wonderful for concluding the day with a spectacular sunset.  After such a fun-filled, sun-drenched day, Casas Brancas is the perfect place to dine and rest up for another full day.

Tip: At Joao Fernandes beach you need to snorkel with See You In Brazil Team and enjoy sometime playing with a turtle - see the video - ???????

Day 3:

Time to refuel your energy with a delicious Brazilian tropical breakfast. You may have breakfast at the pool or requested in your private suite. Get ready to explore more of this magic peninsula.  If you are comfortable driving a manual vehicle, rent a buggy or open beach car for a wonderful way to explore at your leisure. If not, call a cab and they will get you around just as easily. We recommend you make your way to Brava Beach and find a table at Brava Lounge. This intimate restaurant has wonderful cuisine, a full champagne and wine list, and features a fantastic culinary chef.

Following lunch, walk to the right of Brava Beach and up the hill. You will be rewarded with an incredible view of part of the Buzios Peninsula. Continue following the path and you will end up at Olho de Boi’s Beach, a nature preservation area.The waters on the right side of Olho de Boi’s Beach is more calm than the left side. Hills covered with pretty vegetation surround this beach and add to its charm and rich environment. Besides the Brava neighborhood, make a short drive to Forno and Ferradura Beach and spend the remainder of your day soaking up the rays or exploring the surrounding area.

This evening we recommend a visit to the famous creperie at Chez Michou. (one of our favorite is the chocolate crepe with bananas and ice cream!) Chez Michou has a fun, vivacious atmosphere and is known as the best creperie in Brazil. Do not miss out on this fantastic experience.

After burning all that energy, refuel at Geriba Beach and enjoy a bowl of açaí, the delicious Amazon fruit juice that is actually eaten with a spoon. Add strawberries, banana, granola, or another topping of choice to your açaí (sometimes bananas are also blended into the açaí- one of our favorite!). This will be a treat you will long for when you return back home.

This evening, spend your night experiencing all Buzios’ nightlife has to offer. From jazz bars to Brazilian samba and dance clubs, and from renowned boutiques to souvenir stores, there is an option for everyone. The night in Buzios is always young and the action continues until very late. Immerse yourself into the local culture and fun.

Day 5:  

This morning get back out on the water by taking a schooner cruise or a private fisherman boat tour. In the afternoon, take an aqua taxi and spend the day at Tartaruga Beach and watch the mesmerizing sunset. After the beach, we highly recommend a visit to Porto Da Barra, a gastronomy place in Buzios. In Porto Da Barra there are many restaurant options and delectable cuisine. It is only a 15-minute cab ride away from Casas Brancas Boutique Hotel.

This is one of the areas that hosts Buzios’ Annual Cuisine Festival.
