Armação dos Búzios is a beautiful tourist nook, located in the tropical zone of
the South American subcontinent, bathed by the Atlantic Ocean Waters, sunny at most
part of the year and inhabited by pleasant people, from all parts of the world, who enjoy
its 23 beaches.
Stones Street: It’s a Búzios icon. Is the picture of the local glamour. With just over 600
meters long, the ”catwalk” brings together sophisticated bars and restaurants, designer
11shops, hotels, cafes, art galleries, ice cream shops, nightclubs, among others. The
movement is smaller during the day, but when night falls and the yellowish lighting
takes street account, the buzz invades every space. And at dawn, the ”comes-and-goes”
of young people, gringos and couples at the boardwalk is incessant the reason why
shops are open until the early dawn. The spirit of Rua das Pedras also extends towards
Orla Bardot, almost a continuation of the way, but accompanied by the Armação beach.
There can also be found some entertainment and cuisine options.
Harbor of Barra: In perfect harmony with nature, Porto da Barra is a Búzios shopping
and leisure area. With many varied cuisine restaurants, fashion, decoration, sports and
art shops, occupies a green area of 14.000 meters, just in front of Manguinhos sea.
Perfect to enjoy a delicious breakfast, a relaxed lunch, a lively sunset or a romantic
dinner, in a place that reflects the true Búzios ”life style”. Is next to the Manguinhos
fishermen colony, a traditional Buzios fish market.
