Absolutely packed! Not much space under shade and you must purchase food and drinks from restaurants if you use their umbrellas and chairs. Parking is charged for in the area. Water is nice and warm but too many stones.

January 1st on Tartaruga beach was like 4th July on the Jersey shore --- but much better service and amenities. Beach chairs, umbrellas and table available with restaurants providing service. Crowded beyond belief.

Nice clean sand, big waves, ideal for swimming and tanning. Little bit overcrowded, but if you go to the top of the beach, there is lot of free space. You can get a water taxi to the Buzios centre.
