Vila da Praia is a town on the island of Graciosa, one of the islands forming the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores. The port serves as the only viable access point to all of the other islands in the Azores.
Much like the rest of the Azores, Vila da Praia is an oasis of glorious views, gorgeous weather and hours of relaxation. Head there in the winter and the island will be deserted, however, in the summer it transforms into an oasis of tourists enjoying the sun and sea. As expected from an island in such an ideal location, the beaches gracing the coastline are covered in beautiful golden sands laying adjacent to crystal blue waters. The perfect place to while away a few hours whilst gaining a sun kissed tan.
Little activity occurs around Vila da Praia, instead the lifestyle revolves around the small port and the desire to lead a laid back and stress free life. After a few hours lounging around the beaches, try some sumptuous seafood at one of the fine restaurants.
The region is so small that it can be covered by foot.
