A beautiful place to stroll around, with Mt Pico visible across the sea. Cafes, bars, boats, yachts, paintings, shops ... all here. I come here every day. People are friendly and you can keep walking for miles or just relax and enjoy the view.

The history is well documented, yet the combination of art and personal stories told was worth checking out. I took a morning stroll down there and found myself there longer than anticipated. Neat place!

I like to come to Faial. The Marina is nice to walk around and look at all of the yachts and boats. You can see the island of Pico from here which is a magnificent view.

This is the very known place for sailors to meet during their atlantic crossings. You can see many boats coming from all over the word and stopping here for a day or 2 for repairs and relaxing. Here you can really get into the feeling...More

Horta offers something for everybody. The view from the harbor is stunning, the atmosphere is relaxed and the architecture is sublime. Go before it becomes too touristy!

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
