The glamorous and upmarket peninsular of Buzios has over 20 famous beaches to choose from

Buzios has been a luxury getaway for Brazil’s high society since the early 20th century. Located about 3 and a half hours north of Rio, the beautiful peninsular was made popular in the 1960’s when it was visited by French actress Brigitte Bardot whose bronze statue can be found along the oceanfront. Since the 60’s the town has developed rapidly yet retained all of its former fishing village charm. As a favourite spot for the world’s rich and famous there are top quality luxury hotels, excellent fine dining restaurants, tasteful boutiques and a vibrant night life.

Best Time To Visit Buzios

Enjoying a warm climate year round, it is possible to visit Buzios at any time of year. The hottest, busiest and most popular time is during the summer months of November until February. A nice time to go are the transitional months of March, April, May, September or October when there are less crowds but it is still nice and hot. The winter months are low season when the town is much quieter and there is less going on. This is also the coolest time of year, yet it will still be warm.
