  • Fantastic, hot water Beach, clear sand, space, location quite pleasant and refreshing. A place that serves both to be good company or to spend a day alone in relax. A paradise on Earth.

  • This is probably the biggest and most beautiful sandy beach at Azorah. The water temperature here is noticeably higher than on other islands, so bathe more comfortably. Waves certainly attract surfers.
