Gorgeous place to snorkel

Just beautiful. Classic Angra at its best, even when it's drizzling. Transparent waters and beautiful marine life. A must-see when in Angra.

This place is a sand bank in the middle of the ocean. Really cool place for snorkeling, or just enjoying the water in the middle of the ocean. Don't forget to bring your own snacks because there is no food or drinks for sale in there.

Beautiful island with white beach and crystal clear water, but packed with tourists in the high season. Seek away from the big boats and to the farther side of the island.
