Extremely disappointed with the service and exorbitant charge for minor scratch on the car - very bad experience. Highly - Recommend staying away from this rental company. Apart from this experience we found the rest of business, community in Azores areas extremely honourable and respectful.

We were there in April, so we did not have the chance to enjoy the beach, everything was closed anyway. But the view and the feel were great: the wind, the waves, the smell of the sea, the black sand, it was all heavenly. The facility which was closed looked well maintained with a nice deck, café, showers etc. The parking lot is large and next to the beach.

We stood in the hillside overlooking the beach.
The sand not as dark as other beaches .
A vast beach and rolling waves before us . Wonderful, wonderful surf
It was 18 degrees and the wind was light .

What a beautiful February Day overlooking the beach

Lovely beach with dark sand and rough waves. There is a nice gentleman renting chairs and umbrellas. The area has a restaurant/snack stand/WC. I’d be happy to go back.

One of the best beaches I went to in the Azores. Really stunning cliffs, big waves, and plenty of beach to walk along. There is even a little restaurant near the entrance that you can get food at.

Gorgeous beach which is always washed by pretty strong waves, not recommending a long distance (or even mid-distance) swim, however if you're into surfing - it's a must stop! Black sand rocks (not during mid-day though as it's like lava). Overall, highly recommended!

good waves to swim or surf, sand is not too dark, the bar/restaurant nearby has very high prices (the fish Alfonsin was at 20€ while in a small restaurant , I paid 12€)

Great beach. Shallow water but great waves in the afternoon for surfing. Beach is wide sandy & clean. We had a great day! TukáTulá bar is at one end for food, drinks & snacks. 2 surf schools to pick from.

This is a surfer's hotspot, but even for the non surfers this is a nice beach. Large, so can be sure to keep distances from others, and the waves are great to play in. Not safe for the smallest children

Here you are one of the most beautiful beach in Sao Miguel. You feel the waves of the Ocean but they are more "friendly" than in the weast or east coast.
Here you have a very good school of surf and anyone can make a surf lesson with a surf instructor and life guard. I really recommend to try and enjoy it!
