    The sail tours are the best way to go around the hard to reach beaches in Buzios for one day. Enjoy the breath taking views around!

    Visit a few of the islands around Buzios as well as some of its beaches. One of the first stops is Azeda beach considered one of the most picturesque beaches in Buzios. João Fernandes is another beach the schooner visits. This beach is quite large and very popular. It has all the amenities you could possibly want and is made for families with young children. Canto beach is another stop along the way and is the perfect beach to relax and read a good book or sit outside at a beachside café and watch the fishing boats.

    The sail tour also drops visitors off at Virgens and Amores beach as well as Tartaruga beach. Branca Island and Feia Island are also common stops. At each of these stops visitors have the choice of getting off the schooner to spend a time enjoying the beach.

    Enjoy lunch on board the schooner as you sail through the chain of islands off the coast.
