Even locals can’t agree on how many beaches there are here in Armacao dos Buzios (or just Buzios, among friends) though most put the number somewhere between 20 and 25. It’s a matter of interpretation along the dramatically carved coastline of this gorgeous peninsula, reaching with rocky headlands, smoothly hewn sea caves and gently scalloped stretches of sand from the Costa del Sol.
The name, Buzios, is that of an iridescent spiral of seashell, cast up upon the lovely shore. Seers say that these shells, well thrown, will reveal to curious seekers their fortune. No matter what you’re looking for in this sophisticated spot, your desires will almost certainly be fulfilled.
