This is the cleanest beach I have ever been to. The facilities are great and swimming safe. Right by the marina and close to the centre of town

Vitoria is the largest city on Terciera, and this beach is its focal point and reason for being. The day we were there, the windsurfers were out and the wind was up. Many places along the beachfront road to eat outside.

The beach is very beautiful and it stand inside a small bay near the marina. In the beggining of May they are still preparing the beaches for the Summer and the water was a little cold to swim.

Praia de Vitoria, great village on the sea. The harbor is huge, and we viewed it from sea level, and from the mountain top overlook.

The area is quaint and is a great place to walk around. We went to a gift shop with very reasonably priced souvenirs, purchased 100% cotton traditional tablecloths from a linen store and were able to buy electric outlet adapters for 3.50 uros.
