Side Trips from Rio Sights

Praia da Ferradura

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 06/20/2013

Fodor's Review

On a cove that protects it from the winds that often blow elsewhere on the peninsula, Praia da Ferradura has calm waters that make it a perfect choice for families with children. The beach adjoins one of the Búzios area's most exclusive sections—some mansions back right onto it—but the kiosks and beach bars have a relaxed ambience. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented here. Arrive early on summer weekends, when the beach is very popular. Amenities: food and drink;

toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming.
