The beach is just beautiful. The water is always calm because it is protected by the sea waves. So it's safer for the kids.

This is a beautiful beach even though we were there in December. We had a lovely time walking around the area as well as the beach. Gorgeous!

A great place to spend the day, beach bums heaven and a kids paradise. Its beautiful sand and coble stone walk ways with its palm trees makes it great to spend the day. An awesome swin in the salty water, restaurants are not far either...More

Plenty of parking and lots of bars and restaurants. You have allot of dining choices and if shopping is your thing there are a number of shops on the strip

the beach does not offer white sand, but it is well kept and offers nice place for swimming and sunbathing

Went here and did some shopping for gifts. Right next to the shopping is the beach. It's really beautiful and not crowded. The landscape is so different from anywhere I've ever been. It almost looks fake. I loved this area.

It is a nice circular shaped beach very popular with local people in summer. So there were very few people as it was raining and very windy as well. The beach is very clean and well maintained.

Most of the natural pools around Terceira’s coastline are free and very inviting. This one offers a small ocean fed natural pool as well as a nice, somewhat stony, black sand beach. Located just east of Vila Nova, look for the sign ‘Praia de Banhos’...More
