With a coastline that runs from south to north covering almost half of the island of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada is ideal for surfing, bodyboarding, SUP, kitesurfing and windsurfing.
Just outside the city center, less than 10 minutes away by car, you will find the beaches of São Roque, Milícias and Pópulo. In winter they do the delights of experienced and less experienced surfers. In the summertime, tide schedules and bath time schedules should be coordinated to take advantage of the bathing season on these great black sand beaches.
The right and left waves are perfect and the bottoms of sand are, therefore, not dangerous.
There are several companies in the county that rent material and give lessons to surf beginners.
