FAIAL Island - Horta Marina - Pete's Sport cafe - Scrimshaw Museu


Horta marina is a magical atmosphere for a traveller, the marina is covered with paintings from the different visitors that made it to Horta...

The marina is a primary stop for yachts crossing the Atlantic, and its walls, and walkways are covered in paintings created by visitors who noted the names of their vessels, crews, and the years they visited. Peter's Cafe Sport, which is located across from the marina and houses the island's scrimshaw museum, a collection artifacts carved from whale tooth and jawbone, is a point of reference for trans-Atlantic yachtsmen and sailors.






























Café Sport - Legendary Pete's Cafe sport to have a gin tonic surrounded by that sailor atmosphere...
