Six places to combine with Rio de Janeiro
From magical landscapes to powerful waterfalls, six easy escapes to combine with Rio.
Buzios is a trendy and vibrant seaside resort peninsula located two hours north of Rio de Janeiro.
This part of Brazil's coastline is blessed with some the best beaches imaginable. Originally a sleepy fishing village Buzios was popularised in the early 60's by French icon Brigitte Bardot, who escaped here from the paparazzi. Now the rich and famous come to relax and socialise on some of Brazil's most beautiful beaches, attracted to the peninsula's numerous bays and coves with white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters, set against a back drop of emerald Atlantic forest. For those looking to experience authentic Brazilian beach culture, Buzios is the perfect place to combine with a stay in Rio de Janeiro.
There are seven glamorous beaches along the coast, separated by cliffs and bays. The famous village of Buzios and Rua dos Ossos street attract mostly rich Brazilians and Argentineans looking for the modern lifestyle and excellent, small boutique hotels. There are also many people with summer houses and weekend retreats, creating a bustling, sophisticated village with shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife.
