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

Staying in Horta, the Porto Pim beach is an easy walk, you must climb the mountain and see the very nice bay of Porto Pim. This is one of the best views to the beautiful Horta.

Really enjoyed our time here. Good walks, interesting town and a great little bar over looking the bay. Worth a visit and try the fresh quiche at lunchtime.

We found that this beach tended to get busier towards the end of the day when tourists had finished their trips and locals their work. It's a lovely clean beach with shallow sheltered water making it good for kids. It's also good for snorkelling.
