Praia dos Moinhos beach

Ultimate guide (March 2023)
Moinhos is a beach near Porto Formoso in the north of Sao Miguel island, Azores. This was the best secret beach of the island, but it became a little more crowdy - after the renovation. However, it is still a great place to sunbathe, to swim and to eat at the delicious bar. There is a shower and a toilet, - everything is in a good condition. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #2 of the "Best beaches in Sao Miguel island"
