Zimbros Beach, Bombinhas

3.3
#10 of 26 in Outdoors in Bombinhas
Zimbros Beach is recommended for its fish restaurants. This comes as no surprise, as local residents are fishermen who cultivate shellfish and oysters. The calm waters allow for water sports such as sailing and skiing. Those seeking tranquility can enjoy the scenery with vessels docked at the boardwalk. This was the first beach spotted by Azorean settlers in the peninsula. The settlers discovered junipers and hence the name of the beach. The beach is also an ecological center with regional examples of flora and fauna. A visit to Zimbros Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bombinhas trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    Visit with the family to take her grandson to the beach. Cold waters and beach in need of a good cleaning. Few options for food.

    Really a well hidden paradise with calm waters, fish swimming nearby and gulls diving at sea

    Quiet place, with a few waves, excellent for stand up paddle! Blue water seafood farms have very beautiful to watch.

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.
