Angra do Heroismo
July 2011, September 2011, April 2012
Straight forward day and night. There is a security person on watch at night that points out a place and helps with the lines. During summer there is a welcome kai just in front of the marina building.
The floating pontoon near the entry is prone the swell, strechy lines are good. No problems further in, but space is limited during high season.
Free WiFi in the marina, just get a free code, valid for 3 days on checking in. The code works for one computer after activation.
Don´t miss the restaurant “O chico”. In my opinion the best place to eat all over the azores, as far as sailors go. Excellent fish. They offer also meat which I never tried. Make sure you get in there early as it is fully booked during summer.
Take a coffee and good burgers at the kiosk on the main square. It belongs to the small Cafe Alianca on the main street behind it.
Public bus stop at the main square also for interurban services.
Take a bus to Praia da Vittoria for a change in style and ambiente.
Best supermarket (Garita) a 10 min walk up the main street to the east from the main square.
Market up the main street to the west, just to the right one block before you reach the top of the hill.
A must if you are sailing in the azores. A World heritage site.
