its a great non polluted beach like all of them in the azores islands, the wather in the summer is warm and it works all year arround
cristal clear water, warm water in the summer, good location, good waves, can be a litle bit crowded , works better in the winter since they make the constructions in the new marina in ponta delgada, it very close to the main city in sao miguel island.

local rookie comment - very true, populo is good almost all winter long, low or high tide as long and the wind's not from the east or strong south wind. In the summer I only got good waves on low tide on a windy day a few hours after it spined from south to north, +_+

- the summer is on the north shore. in the winter (as it was with the gordon hurricane) because of the storms, populo is a vey good beach break
