But not to clean. We've been to this beach many times over the years, it is so convenient if you are staying in Horta. BUT, there is a small beach on the opposite side of Horta, by the round about that is so much better.

The bay is a clean, fine-sand beach, it provides good support services like free showers, toilets, bar, first aid (Blue Flag). Water is warm, clean, without dangerous waves.

One of the most beautiful beaches in Faial. Very interesting are the "Whale Factory" and the Aquarium. Perfect water to swim.

The real way if you wanna live a vulcanic beach. No noises, no music, no mobile phone, no scream. Just ocean and black vulcanic sand. A really paceful and relaxing place in Horta.

This is one of two best views to the beautiful Horta. Nothing up there except for a nice start for a walk around the protected area...and the good view.

I had read the book by Tabucchi many years ago. I was a little dissapointed as I had many expectations about this place. Nice beach, not much more
