It is located next to the marina and is the only sandy beach in the Bay of Angra Heroísmo, where the waters are calm and pleasant. Then, in the region of the capital, we find other beaches, natural pools, such as Biscoitos, one the most beautiful places in the region. The Bay of Pombas is also a highly recommended beach. It’s a bay with a natural rock formation where you can also go diving.
