Just Fishing Off the Shore of Buzios' Armacao Beach


The resort town of Buzios is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It's become a quite popular destination for cruise ship passengers and other tourists as well as locals. This life-size "three fishermen" bronze sculpture can be spotted just off the shores of Armacao Beach. At low tide you can see the shoes on each fisherman, but as the tide rises, the three become knee-deep in water!

Have you heard of Buzios, Brazil?

I have to admit that, before reserving our 2018 South American cruises, I had not. Apparently it was Brigitte Bardot who put the small resort village on the map. It is said that, following her visit in the early 1960s, wealthy Brazilians started vacationing on the 20+ beaches of the Buzios peninsula. Now, travelers from around the world enjoy these same beaches.

This bronze sculpture stands just off the shores of Armacao Beach. Since Buzios has a large fishing community, the "three fishermen" are often surrounded by a number of fishing boats!

Does Buzios sound like a place you'd want to visit?
