Welcome to Búzios


Búzios is not a single town but rather three settlements on the same peninsula – Ossos, Manguinhos and Armação de Búzios. Ossos (Bones), at the northern tip of the peninsula, is the oldest and most attractive. It has a pretty harbor and yacht club, plus a few hotels and bars. Manguinhos, on the isthmus, is the most commercial. Armação, in between, is the heart of town, with the most tourist amenities; it’s here that you’ll find Rua das Pedras, the hub of Búzios’ nightlife, and Orla Bardot, the town's picturesque beachfront promenade.
