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.

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.

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
