I had a walk in the marina and admired the paintings from all over the world. Some are simple, some are real art works.

The marina is easily accessible from the town of Horta and offers a variety of attractive recreational opportunities. I enjoyed more than one excursion with Dive Azores and they were topnotch.

This area was a fantastic place to walk, browse and enjoy watching the crews come into port. Enjoy some great cappuccino or espresso and just slow down :-)
