Ocean Swimming

TheIsland of São Miguel is surrounded by excellent mild water beaches, emphasizing the  Ribeira Quente beach, 12 km from the Casa dos Barcos e Casa da Lagoa. It is a fine beach of mild water, heated in certain areas by the existing boilers on the seabed. In addition to this, at about 15Km , you’ll find the Vinha da Areia  Beach , also much appreciated.
