Additional Location Information

Almoxarife has a choice of restaurants and cafes, a shop, camp site, children's playground and church. During the summer there is a lifeguard situated on the beach.

The main town of Horta is just a few minutes drive away, up and over the ridge which shelters the bay. From its modern marina you can go whale watching, swimming with dolphins, snorkelling with sharks and manta rays, deep sea, coastal and sport fishing, diving and sailing. You can also go horse trekking, take guided walks and visit our spectacular "Caldeira", and the Capelinhos eruption site and lighthouse, and impressive underground interpretation centre.

Passenger ferries to Pico and Sao Jorge, allow you to explore two more islands during your stay. Pico boasts the highest mountain in Portugal, a whaling museum, whaling factory, vineyards which feature on the UNESCO World Heritage sites list, the wine factory and fascinating lava tube caves. Sao Jorge is simply a beautiful, quiet island, ridged with volcanic craters and edged by cliffs sheltering pretty villages - the "fajas". The cheese factory is always a favourite visit on this island.
