    Great marina to explore Graciosa. We tied up on the inside of the breakwater where it's possible to dock two+two boats longside, very protected. Not a lot of sailboats come here. Check in at the GNR police station which doubles as marina/tourist office. If you move the boat (i.e. up to Santa Cruz) you must notify them first. The only beach on the island is available just around the corner and offers nice swims and atmosphere. Not much going on, but the island has a lot of nice nature to offer, and delicious cookies only made on this island. We rented bicycles and spent two days exploring. The inside of the caldeira is amazing and there is also a nice view from the top, and I would also recommend go around the island. There is a bigger tourist office in Santa Cruz where you can have more info and brochures.

    We were lucky to get a space on the concrete wall. The Harbour is actually a fishing Harbour (This is NOT A MARIÑA!!!) However there is space for 2-4 Visiting yachts if you arrange yourself in a smart way. Raft up in case needed. Visiting yachts Tie up on the outer breakwater (Northeast side, directly to portside once you enter the Harbour, north of the Pilot-Tender, opposite site of the slip and travel lift, directly at the Harbour entrance!). There’s no water, no electricity but neither are charges made to visiting yachts. As well there’s nobody organizing the berth opportunities, so you’ve to show up with good seamanship and a good portion of human sense. The town provides a bakery (with the typical local cakes which are produced here) a supermarket and two small cafes/snackbars near the promenade, plus a ATM/Bank and a Post-Station. Sleepy old town with nothing else to offer. There’s a rental car station near Santa Cruz which delivers cars to the port. Check in is only possible if you’ve cleared in at another port yet (if you arrive from Caribbean or outside Acores). The GNR station is up the road in a white corner house with green windows.
