Photographer's Note

Here a common scene of two boys playing in the beach. This scene make me remember when I was a child. Photo taken at Turtle Beach at Buzios.

Turtle Beach

Golden sand beach and 2km in length, the Turtle Beach is surrounded by virgin native forest (Atlantic Forest) providing an atmosphere of adventure and being one of the prettiest in Buzios.

Cove of crystalline, calm and warm waters, ideal for the spawning of three species of sea turtles, giving the beach name.

The place is wonderful for activities such as windsurfing, snorkeling, banana boat, kayaking and still being an obligatory stop for all boat tours.
