Description of the surrounding area
Monte da Guia – Local Accommodation is located just a few minutes from Porto Pim Beach, which boasts the Blue Flag of Europe and one of the most frequented on Faial Island, located within the city, in a nook of Monte da Guia. Within its area of coverage, there is the Whale Station of Porto Pim, one of the most relevant testimonies of the industrial past of Faial Island and which is now an interpretive center of the old Azorean whaling activity. This bay has, in the southeast, a set of gray dunes of herbaceous vegetation, habitat that is classified by Natura 2000 Network. Its volcanic origin is recognizable by the presence of two elevations attached to it, Monte da Guia and Monte Queimado. Monte da Guia is imposing by its height, clearly dominating the relief of the surroundings.
