Atmosphere

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.

I like ***** - It is the best beach of Azores

By Anonymous , 02-01-2007

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
