When visiting the picturesque ocean peninsula that houses the upscale resort town nicknamed “Brazil’s San Tropez,” Buzios shore excursions are all about the sights, the sun, and the sea.
Sail away on a Buzios cruise excursion aboard a luxury schooner that sails past a dozen of the area’s most beautiful beaches and three of its loveliest islands, dotted with impressive homes of the rich and famous. Enjoy that same “rich and famous” lifestyle onboard as you sip refreshments and view the impressive sights. Anchor for a swim at Ilha Feia (Ugly Island), so called because of its unusual weather, and later at Tartaruga (Turtle) Island before heading back to the marina for some people watching at a seaside café.
Enjoy a glorious beach morning on Buzios shore excursions to Ferradura Beach, a lovely horseshoe-shaped cove beach with soft, golden sand perfect for sunning, swimming, and strolling. Relax and take in the scene of sparkling sea and cloudless sky. Sip an espresso con liete with a tasty croissant at a beach bakery, or sit under an umbrella with a refreshing drink at one of the beach kiosks. Wander to either end of the beach to view spectacular hillside mansions from your cruise to South America.
Buzios shore excursions that take you on a guided, open-air trolley ride are fun and fascinating. Ride around what was once a sleepy fishing village that became a go-to chic spot after a lengthy visit in the 1960s by French film star Brigitte Bardot. Stop at some of the most scenic beaches and lookouts, shop the boutiques and art galleries along Rua das Pedras, and stroll the winding oceanfront promenade Orla Bardot.
From your cruise to Buzios, travel across an ocean peninsula to visit Ponta da Lagoinha, a spectacular natural area of rough beach, rugged rock formations, natural pools, and lush vegetation, where you can truly appreciate the wonders of nature. Stop at two scenic overlooks for some of the most picture-worthy vistas in all of Brazil.
