Bombas Beach, Bombinhas

4.1
#6 of 26 in Outdoors in Bombinhas
Bombas Beach is a 2 km (1.2 mi) stretch of white sand and crystal clear waters, which range from a deep blue to emerald green. The unusual name Bombas Beach--or "Beach of Bombs"--is said to come from the Azorean explorers who discovered the region. The explorers heard the rumbling of waves through the jungle and mistook it for explosions. Along the beachfront, you will find plentiful restaurants and shops, should you find yourself lacking any supplies.

  • We love the beach, I went on my honeymoon in November and they are doing a cycle path and hiking trail on the shore, the only problem is that the sea is increasingly into the beach decreasing the extent of sand.

  • Beautiful beach next to Firecrackers but without being so famous as sister nearby. Worth knowing because it is the way of bombs with beautiful nature and great beach.

  • Normal as many already know, more for those who are in firecrackers worth knowing that beach.

Where to stay in Bombinhas

Most visitors choose to stay near the coast in Bombinhas, with charming pousadas (guesthouses) and a few simple hotels offering a range of amenities. Moving inland slightly will offer more choices for budget-conscious travelers. While the backpacker hostels and small pousadas here may lack the sea views, they still put you only a few minutes' walk from the beach. For those wishing to stay for an extended period, rental apartments offer good options, with a fairly broad range covering plenty of tastes and budgets.
