“Very interesting”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Somewhere along the way, sailors who are crossing the Atlantic, and stopping in Faial started painting sections of the wall along this marina. Walking all around and seeing the different paintings, where the boats were from, etc. is truly entertaining, even if you are not a sailor. A nice way to while away some time before or after having an espresso at one of the cafe's, a drink at Peter's, etc.

“Lacking”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Given the high trade from the boats the marina is distinctly lacking in decent restaurants and other facilities. The yatch club is a dirty building badly in need or refurbishment although it could be great.

“Interesting if you like boats and people watching”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Many yachting folk stop here on their way to or from the Caribbean or round the world. They paint murals on the pavements of their adventures and boat names so it adds a bit of character to the harbour. Nice place to while away an hour or two.
