Buzios is a peninsular city located in the west of the state of Rio de Janeiro. The old fishing village became known to the general public in the 1960s after the visit of French actress Brigitte Bardot. It is famous for its beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters and mild climate. Its waters may be cold in the beaches to the south side of the peninsula due sea currents coming from Argentina or warmer on the beaches to the north side due currents coming from the region of the Ecuador line. There are also beaches of different types, with great waves, perfect for surfers, or more calm. Among other activities that can be carried out in the city are fishing, diving, boat and trolley trips. Considered the Brazilian Saint Tropez, it’s a destination for those who wish to stay in a small town and enjoy its tranquility.
