At first, Buzios appears to be nothing more than a typical Brazilian fishing village, but look closer and you'll find 23 beaches to serve your surfing needs. The area is so nice, in fact, that it has been dubbed "the jewel of the Carioca seaside."
At Manguinhos, windsurfers can be spotted year round thanks to the 10 to 25 knot winds, while the shortboard surfers can be found off the beaches of Pero and Geriba. Generally, the conditions are calm and inviting, especially during the peak months of December through February. As a bonus, several beachside clubs and bars await you following a day on the waves.Biggest waves: 8 feet
