Nice beach but not exceptionnal
Sep 2020
The main beach is nice and the view is also really awesome.
We walk on the rocks instead of walking on the road.
I would advise to do the same (just be careful as this can be really slippery).

Overall this was nice but not exceptionnal. Maybe this is due to the fact that the weather was grey/rainy. I might change my mind on a sunny day.

Black sand beach
Jul 2019
It is a nice little cove of black sand beach. It is a nice place to hang out and relax. The view of the cliffs and rocks is amazing.

Mosteiros Beach was my target for long exposure photography of the black basalt sea stacks. The black sand beach was not crowded that day in June. Wonderful.

Loved staying on the coast!
Dec 2019
We rented a cottage on the coast and enjoyed the views everyday. We were there during December which had sunny and rainy days — the ocean was beautiful to watch on the stormy days too. We enjoyed walking around the town and having a cappuccino on the town square.

Its a beach
Aug 2019
Not much more to say. It is a beach which most prominent feature is the black sand and the cliffs.

Since this is in the middle of the atlantic, expect big waves and rip currents. Also, the beach might be sandy and you would think the same is the case in the water - but it isn’t... 5 meters out there is nothing but big rocks, so take care when going out into the swell.

Great black beach
Sep 2019 • Couples
The access road is a nice steep road with nice houses. Once you get there the scenery is incredible! Black sand, steep hills and black rocks in the ocean.
Not too many people in the ocean though...

nice waves and surfing opportunities
Sep 2019
a long drive from Ponta Delgata, but worth the time. The chance to surf depending on the weather. Restaurants in the town.

Very nice beach

Went here on trip from Ponta Delgada, we took a bus for like 2 euros. Beach is small, but really nice, also you get beautiful view on the road aproaching the city.

A great little beach
Jul 2019
Our group of 8 stopped here for less than an hour after going to the Twin Lakes. The water was cool and the sand hot. There were quite a few jellyfish the day we were there so that's why we didn't stay very long. The view is gorgeous with the stone outcrops. There are also restrooms and changing rooms. There isn't a parking lot; it's only street parking.
