Praia dos Ossos (Bones Beach) is a small beach with 400m long. The beach with calm water is a small natural seaport used by many "boat-taxis". Paying between 3-6 dollars a boat-taxis can take you to a beautiful beach.
Its name comes from the use of its sands to extract oil and whale meat, activity performed there during the seventeenth century, which ultimately left the sands covered with the bones of animals. Some sources, however, say the name comes from a genocide committed against Tupinambás Indians by Portuguese conquerors during the sixteenth century, which transformed the paradise beach into a open air cemetery.
Búzios, is a resort town and a municipality located in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Once the preserve of pirates and slave traders, the peninsula of Búzios, has become a tourist destination with over 20 beaches in the vicinity.
The peninsula was popularized by legendary movie star Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s, and her statue sits along the main street of Búzios, the Rua das Pedras (Street of stones).
Buzios is a beach resort with an active nightlife and restaurants. The west coast beaches offer calm, clear waters while the east coast ones, facing the open sea, are a bit more wild and draw surfers and water sports enthusiasts. Among the most popular beaches are Ferradura, João Fernandes with several bars and known for its seafood, Armação, and Geribá, popular for surfing. The beach of Manguinhos is known for windsurfing. Rua das Pedras, the main street, winds through the town center and features shopping, restaurants, bars and comprehensive nightlife.

Cette photo est prise 2 jours avant le jour de l'an. Pour nous, c'est le monde à l'envers, avec la neige qui recouvre le territoire. Un beau plan large d'une très belle plage.

Beleza de foto. Apesar de o céu estar bem azul, a cor do mar é um pouco dark. Uma coisa boa de se ver são esses barocs espalhados.

A superb composition with this quiet corner of the beach, beautiful sea view that all ships anchored off the coast, a beautiful sky that adds beauty to the image.
Perfect management of light and color.
Good start of week.
P/D. You asked for the feeling of being in Delphi, I'll tell you that I'm passionate about ancient civilizations and find there, surrounded by large ruins in a landscape so grand, surrounded by peace, a pleasant wind, was a very pleasant feeling and great happiness.
