Well not quite 30 beaches in 4 days. But 23 in 3 if that is any compromise.
The rule was Scott (new mate from Hervey Bay Australia) or I had to swim to make it count. Both of us ended up swimming in nearly all of them.

Brazil beaches are stunningly perfect. We headed of from Rio with the sole purpose being to Beach Hop to Buzios. A Mediterranean style Paradise.

Saquarema (where a massive church overlooks 4 very nice secluded beaches) to Araial De Carbo (where we took a boat cruise and checked some beaches on an island or two) to Buzios (A magnificent stretch of Brazilian coastline with Buzios being the final destination and having the best beach of them all. We hired a buggy for this one).

I was in paradise. I was meant for the ocean. I body surfed a wave for the longest time I ever thought imaginable. We had perfect weather for a week. The whitest sand the most perfect flora and fauna. The most unforgettable settings. Beaches where the sole barman worked out of his boat and had to paddle to the beach itself. Driving the beast of a buggy over dunes to reach beaches. No other tourists and next to no other people. Green to light blue to clear water. No wind. Perfect Perfect Perfect.   

Besides the beaches, at the end of our Journey together, Scott and I went to a small bar-restaurant where a small band played live music (Eric Clapton). Scott and I had some extremely cold beer while the sun set  over the magnificent green waters of the first beach we visited in Buzios. Absolutely unforgettable PRICELESS. I felt as though I was melting into my seat.
