It’s only a 40 minute drive from Arraial do Cabo to Buzios, where we stay for 2 nights. En route we stop to visit the cosmopolitan coastal city of Cabo Frio. Despite the name translating to ‘Cold Cape’, it has splendid sun all year round and is known for its long white-sand beaches and wind-sculptured sand dunes.
After settling in to our accommodation in Buzios we take an orientation tour of the city. Buzios was once a quiet fishing village until French movie star Brigitte Bardot turned up in the 1960s. It wasn’t long before Mick Jagger, Madonna and all of Rio’s ‘beautiful people’ followed. Nowadays Buzios is considered one of the coolest, hippest and most sophisticated beach towns this side of the equator.
