Choose a cafe, get your drink, get your food, sit back and watch the world go by. This is where you'll find whale watching, diving and fishing trips.

Nice marina, almost compulsory stop for sailors crossing the north Atlantic. Look for the tags/paintings left by the sailing boats, all over the marina.

Strangely, this busy attractive marina is also one of the most beautiful and calm places we have been. There are lots of painting to see and many trips to take (either the ferry to other islands, or whale watching, swimming with dolphins, diving , and a glass bottom boat).

If you visit, go say hi to Pedro at HortaCetaceos and ask him about the Panda dolphins.....

If in Horta, you can't avoid visiting the marina. All those sailing yachts from all over the world. And the paintings on the quay walls from the people who sailed to Horta - either coming from the carib making a stop-over before they continue their voyage to "somewhere else" or from Europe, sailing to the Carib... Breathtaking!
