Most of the places near Búzios offer similar attractions: sun, sand, nature and nightlife. Some of them are less expensive, some less raucous, some more relaxed. But if you wanted cheap or tranquil or down-to-earth, you wouldn’t have come to Búzios anyway, right? Still, if you’re looking for a daytime escape, there are a few worthy options, including the Tamar turtle preservation, the 17th-century Barra de São João village, and the Poço das Antas Biological Reserve.

Day Trips from Búzios

Arraial do Cabo

This is the take-off point for Cabo Frio Island, the diving capital of Brazil. Coastal currents change directions here – from north-south to west-east - channeling the deep Atlantic waters to the surface. As a result, the region is rich in marine species (see everything from seahorses to sharks).
