The following information is considered to be the information provided by the port.
Angra do Heroismo is a city on the Azores island of Terceira. Together with Horta on the island of Faial and Ponta Delgada on the island of Sao Miguel, it is one of three regional capitals on the Azores islands. A World Heritage town on the Azorean island of Terceira, Angra do Heroísmo has ruled the archipelago since the Age of Discovery. Thanks to this mid-Atlantic setting it looks like few other European towns, and the many historic fortifications are proof of Angra’s role in trade and conquest. Angra’s Bay is believed to be the western seas’ port of call since the 15th century. Angra was a compulsory stop for every ship that crossed the Atlantic. Today, Angra’s Marina rests enveloped by the city of Angra do Heroísmo, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site since 1983, due to its architecture. The Marina has excellent high-end complementary services, giving the city a fashionable touch of modernity. Next to Angra’s Marina there is a beach, and, on the opposite side, you can explore the subaquatic archeological parks of the city. Being in them means diving into History: you will find a cemetery of anchors plus what is left of the wreckage of Lidador, a 19th century Portuguese ship. Angra’s Marina holds the European Blue Flag since 2006. Choose from our available boats (use the detailed search engine) and make a reservation.
