Just a few hours drive up the coast from Rio, Buzios is a popular destination for the city’s residents. Famous for being ‘discovered’ in the 1960s by Bridgette Bardot, Buzios is no longer the sleepy fishing village it once was, with an abundance of restaurants, bars, boutique shops, and hotels. Thankfully, development has not been too drastic, and the town still retains much of its charm, often being referred to as the Brazilian Saint Tropez. Set on a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic, there are many beaches within easy reach of the village. This is a great place to come and soak up the atmosphere with a variety of different activities on offer.
