Olho de Boi Beach

Positioned on the western side of a tiny cove shaped like a “V”, Olho de Boi is an official nudist beach on a promontory of land outside of the resort town of Armação dos Búzois. It is accessible only by water taxi or on foot via a jungle path of around 1.5 kilometres (1 mile) in length. The name of the beach translates literally to ‘eye of the bull’, which comes from the small red seeds that can be found on its sand.

Its short extent of pale sand is surrounded by rocks sweeping into the Atlantic which provide some protection for the full force of the ocean. 

Olho de Boi is probably best known as the main nudist beach in the Buzios area but onlyXXXXX has space for just a few dozen parasols. The only significant form of shade available from the sun, they need to be brought to the beach by visitors, as the only facility is a small kiosk selling a limited selection of drinks and snack foods.XXXXX
