Búzios is located on a five-mile peninsula jetting out into the South Atlantic Ocean. Etched into the hillsides are magnificent homes positioned to optimize the fabulous vistas. The coastline is defined by about a dozen lush promontories sloping toward the sea. These fingers shelter the cove-like havens of sand. The beaches in the west and north promise the calmest water. The waves in the east facing the ocean attract suffers. In the south, the best beaches are Praia de Geribá (popular among the young crowd) and Praia da Ferradura (favored by families). On the right are the two places you just visited: Azeda and Azedinha. Around the center cape named Ponta do Cavalo Ruço are two more beaches you will want to add to your vacation to-do list.
