Okay, you have eaten, perhaps enjoyed a beer or two and have reapplied your sunscreen. Now it is time to explore the western beaches in Búzios. The closest one to town is Praia do Canto. The shoreline initially runs parallel to Rua das Pedras, a main avenue for shops and restaurants. The other end of the half-mile beach is fronted by mansions. The bay views at Canto Beach are wonderful and the location is convenient. Yet this oceanfront lacks the charm of so many others in Búzios.
