Praia do Almoxarife

Maritime beach, located a few kilometers from the city of Horta, which surprises by the expansive sands of dark sand, in a Bay stretching from the port from the beach up to the tip of the Espalamanca, to the South. The island of Pico, with its mountain, presents itself in front, thus completing a framework of singular beauty. During the summer months filled with locals and tourists. Even in the remaining months, and since the weather is inviting, is a desirable location for walks on the Boardwalk. Is, without doubt, a safe bet for those who want to relax a bit on the island of Faial.
