Búzios

Beaches in Brazil. 19-Oct-2009 .BrazilBeachTravel
The Búzios peninsula combines impressive natural charms and a sophisticated infrastructure 190 kilometers from Rio de Janeiro

Only two hours by car from Rio de Janeiro, if the classic bottlenecks of the Rio-Niteroi bridge do not exist, this irregular peninsula is full of geographical features in the form of small inlets between mountains covered with vegetation and crystalline green sea. Búzios is one of the most sophisticated destinations in Brazil, sophistication and glamor originated in part when the French actress Brigitte Bardot used the then humble village of Pescadores, as escape and refuge against the siege that the press had installed in Rio.

That fishing village without light or water but full of remarkable natural beauty, where Brigitte spent the best moments of her life, today has become a famous international tourist destination, chosen by many couples on honeymoon, and rich and famous cariocas. However, the memory of those days still persists in the relaxed and free image of the Bardot immortalized in its statue on the seashore, on the coast of the Armação beach that bears his name.

Búzios is not a cheap destination if compared to other beaches in Brazil, in some cases even things cost twice as much as in other places. However, it is possible to find some inns and tourist packages of medium price, especially in the low season, which allow you to enjoy their charms.

For backpackers and low budgets, it is recommended to stay in the neighbor Cabo Frio ( See on map ), where it is possible to find apartments and cheap inns, and from there access to the exclusive charms of the sophisticated Bardot peninsula by a trip of approximately 40 minutes by bus. This option also allows you to enjoy the attractions of Cabo Frio that include some very nice beaches such as Praia das Conchas and Praia do Peró , and good nightlife in bars on the banks of the Boulevard do canal . You can also visit Arraial do Cabo more easily, the other peninsula of the região dos lagos located a few kilometers south of Cabo Frio, with beautiful beaches of similar charms to those of Búzios but less crowded.
