    Beforehand: We haven’t been here by boat, just visiting from the landsite! The port seems to be approachable for all boats up to 2m draft. There’s a new pontoon which had space alongside, even with electricity and water - access with a key (Call the club naval before tying up). Bigger yachts may tie up on the concrete wall, which was completely free or just occupied by two smaller fishing boats. As the depth on the entrance shoals fast I wouldn’t recommend to approach in any kind of onshore swell. During or after heavier rains the local river also seems to dewater through the narrow Harbour entrance so you might expect some current going out, not so when we were here (July 21). We didn’t find GNR, foreign yachts may have to call GNR Ponta Delgada for clearance but There’s a police station in town where you can report to. The town offers a mid size supermarket and some Restaurants. There’s a public infinity pool and a small sandbeach just west of the Marina. As well as public toilets and cold-showers (which were cleaner then most sanitaries we’ve seen in France so far). The playground is one of the better ones for those showing up with toddlers. The town is worth a short visit and definetely more charming then big Marinas but probably nothing worth to start a longer trip from anywhere (unless you live in the Acores and want to see something else then P.D.)...
