Populated originally by European pirates and slaves, the picturesque fishing village of Búzios, just a short two hours drive northeast of Rio de Janeiro city, was unknown until the early 60s, when the French actress Brigitte Bardot visited there in her heyday, along with her Brazilian boyfriend. Since then the city has received an international reputation and grown into a very popular tourist destination.
Famous for its unique combination of charm and rustic architecture, Buzios is now a tourist spot full of boutiques, trendy bars and active nightlife and restaurants. During the holiday season, late in December through Carnival in February, Buzios receives travelers from all over the world, when the population reaches 100,000 inhabitants.
The charming peninsula of Buzios offers the visitor more than 20 sandy white beautiful beaches and several sports activities. The beaches of Ferradura and Joao Fernandinho are more sheltered offering calm crystal-clean waters, as well as the Azeda beach, which is prettier, but harder to get to. The Geriba and Praia Brava are facing the open sea, so they are a bit wilder drawing surfers and water sports enthusiasts.
