The Praia do Populo beach is located in the town of Sao Roque, on the island of Sao Miguel, about a 10-15 minute drive from Ponta Delgada.  It is one of the many soft black sand beaches, on the island, and a great beach to take a dip on a hot day.

During the summertime the beach is very popular with the locals, as there are restaurants, cafés, and even a hotel near the beach.

These pictures were taken in late November, while it was windy day, the temperature was in the 60’s that day and there were people surfing in the water.
