Actually, I go to this beach every single weekend and I love it.

Joao Fernandes Beach
(29)
If you do not like riots, leave behind the great Praia de Joao Fernandes (full of restaurants, hotels and bars on the beach), and walk from there to your right. Soon you will find Joao Fernandinho , which is a divine beach, more family-oriented and much less crowded. You'll see many seafood stalls selling rustic, 'Siris' roasts and fish. Do not miss out on the oysters, they are an unforgettable treat. Armed with food and drink, if you walk further to the right you will find a strip of golden sand that is solitary, only dotted with some large stones. The place is fantastic and clear warm waters are ideal for snorkelling.

Praia Vermelha Beach
(10)
Praia Vermelha is one of those Rio de Janeiro beaches, rather overshadowed by the more popular Copacabana and Ipanema. Its charm lies in the views of the hills of Urca and the Sugarloaf. It's located near the entrance of the cable car that will take you up the Sugarloaf. Many tourits are unaware of this small beach, named for its reddish colour at sunset, which comes from the pulverized rock crystals in the sand. It's a pity that there are two serious drawbacks to enjoying it: the water is very deep and, worse, there's a lot of junk floating in it. But it's worth going to appreciate this unique landscape.
Beaches in Cabo Frio
Praia do Forte - Praia da Barra
(10)
Praia do Forte is the most emblematic area of Cabo Frio as it is located in the heart of the city. It is impressive due to its 7.5 km long and white sandy beach. Its name comes from the Fort of San Mateos which is located on the left side of this popular beach. Neraby, there are many kiosks where you can rent deckchairs and umbrellas. The surrounding buildings are all located on the pretty coastal avenue. In addition there are plenty of vendors selling all sorts of things. I was impressed by the fine white sand, clear turquoise waters and especially the strong waves that are perfect for surfers and really compete with other beaches of Rio de Janeiro that are so popular. I really enjoyed visiting this place although it was very tiring. Next time, I intend to spend more time here!
Beaches in Angra dos Reis
Praia de Lopes Mendes Beach
(5)
It is one of the most famous beaches on the Brazilian coast, especially among the surfing community. Its location 2.5km ocean beach of white sand, with waves have made it a favorite among Cariocas surfing. Today it's a deserted beach with no buildings, and there's only food and beverage service during summer. Islanders come with their beach coolers loaded with soft drinks, beer and food to sell to surfers and swimmers. Swimming can be a bit dangerous because the currents are very strong , but it's shallow enough that if you're cautious if you want to cure a hangover. It's reached by a path from Abrao. You can ride a bike, about 8km, or go by boat.
Beaches in Buzios
Los Ossos Beach
(11)
Ossos Beach - according to the many local stories that try to explain somehow the real origin of its name, the common denominator is that it could have been given because of whale bones found on its shores. On the left side are the Church of Santana and the Yacht Club de Buzios, on the other side you can use a path to get to the Azeda beach.

Tartaruga Beach
(16)
This beautiful beach has the name 'tartaruga' because in the not too distant past turtles come up on to it to lay their eggs there. Tartaruga is located on the opposite side to where the largest part of [poi = 111747] Buzios beaches are [/ poi], but worth a detour, because it's really quite amazing. The strip of sand is bounded on one side by large rocks that go into the sea, where they form beautiful natural pools. The site is amazing for photographers, as the scenery is stunning. Tartaruga, being so near Buzios, has loungers for eent and various restaurants and bars in the area.

Azeda Beach
(13)
Walking for 15 minutes along a path that runs along the ocean from the Ossos, we reach this paradise of calm water in a cove that is transparent. Azeda doesn´t have services, except the typical boats nestled in the sand where they sell drinks and coconuts. The corner is a great place to go on a day when the cove is empty.

Grumari Beach

I've spent many holidays, from my childhood until today, on this beach. It's a unique landscape in the area of Barra da Tijura, in a protected natural environment. Strongly recommended for surfers, a completely family environment.

Ferradura Beach
(8)
Closed, the huge bay of Ferradura is characterized by its calm waters, perfect for learning to windsurf and sailing in tiny boats. The beach is quiet and familiar, each both have rustic stalls where you can buy fruit and drinks. This corner of Buzios is surrounded by amazing homes with gardens. A place I recommend is the Morro da Ferradura, the highest point of the bay, with spectacular views.

Praia do Forno Beach
(7)
Arriving to Praia do Forno is not easy and neither is explaining it, because as one arrives, there are countless tracks and none of them are marked. The effort to keep asking for the way is worthwhile, since the beach is paradise. It is closed off on one side by a stone cliff and big semi submerged rocks in the ocean, this corner of Buzios is amazing. Clear water and incredible color, golden sand and seagulls , and fishing boats dotting the landscape. Praia do Forno is perfect for snorkeling. Just stick your head in the water and you will see an amazing world.

The Arrows Beach
(5)
If you are given a tour of Niteroi, I highly recommend the Arrows for an afternoon or evening visit. There are many sporting activities, the water is clean and the area is quiet. It's mostly a family beach. There's a stretch of road that's ideal for walking or jogging, and the beach is easily accessible along the promenade as many buses circulating. Also, after the center is sunbathing a few blocks, so one can "climb" to lunch and back to the beach quickly.

Ferradurinha Beach
(11)
It's a really small beach where you can do stand up or swim to the other beach right in front of it or even jump from a rock. I must add that the water it’s really cold and there’s almost no service
