Very nice marina. Safe place. There is so many paintings on the walls and floor, hardly any space to be seen, just spent a couple hours leisurely walking the pier and read all about the sailors from different countries. Lots of restaurants and shopping areas...More

A nice little harbour which is clean enough for the local kids to swim in. Around the harbour are little pictures/flags for boats which have stopped there. From here you get a good view of Pico, assuming it's not covered in cloud.

We walked through the Marina, on our way for Gellato. The outside edges of the Marina walls are decorated with pictures/plaques showing the dates and names of sailors who have completed their journeys. We enjoyed reading some of the colourful ones, on our way past.

Our cruise ship had tendors into the main dock area. Stroll down the main drag for shops and restaurants, and this neat marina area. A big tradition that staff from ships of all kinds create a painting here. Very interesting to see the variety.

The harbour and breakwater are festooned with paintings that visiting yachtsmen have left. It was fascinating to read about a family (or two or three) that stopped by on their sailing trip around the world. Or those who did the same trip, solo. Other harbours...More

Boardwalk walking tour, interesting but not a must do. Certainly there are other more interesting ways to spend one's time in Horta

It is tradition for a long time ago for the sailors to leave a painting on the wall, as a souvenir. This makes it a very colourful marina and worth to visit.

Really enjoyed our jaunt to the marina to view the artwork from past visitors. Colourful displays against the backdrop of the docked boats with the Pico volcano in the distance made for some lovely pictures captured.

Ships from all over the world leave their s"sign in" on cement squares near the harbor. It is free to see and very interesting.
