Do not miss going to the Whaling Museum on Porto Pim. You will see a life sized replica of a whale and learn all about what goes into using every bit of the whale right down to the skeleton remain.

Beautiful bay with nice outdoor seating bars. Genuino and taberna pim are great dining options and you have also another nice outdoor seating bar for a nice sunset. Quit beach. Great views.

Good food. Not really cheap. Fine terrace, but we ate inside because of the weather. Inside there were many banks and almost no chairs. Not really comfortable.

This is a small but very lovely beach on the island of Faial. I love to come here as it is usually not very crowded when I come (early September). Sand is grey and sticks to everything but I don't mind. There are change rooms...More
