Azores, Pico Island

The harbour at Madalena now provides extensive berthing alongside the various quays for several yachts of all sizes but with no onshore facilities. There did not appear to be any established GNR. There is no Immigration as Madalena is not a Port of Entry.
The extended breakwater provides a well sheltered berth but the original pontoon facility is now occupied by dive and whale watching boats. There is a small anchorage immediately outside the old marina area and swimming area with reasonable holding but exposed to swell.
Car hire and restaurants readily available opposite new ferry terminal adjacent to the harbour.
