Sitting on the calm shores of the Baia Praia da Vitoria, the Atlantida Mar Hotel has one of the best ocean views on Terceira.
Voted ‘Best small hotel in Portugal’ for five consecutive years, the Atlantida Mar has a privileged position on the seafront of Praia da Vitoria – Terceira’s laid-back second city. There are twenty-eight spacious, modern rooms in total: double rooms come with either a mountain view or a sea view balcony, junior suites all have sea view balconies, double/twin beds and a kitchenette, and the large duplex apartments are spread over two floors with a twin/double bedroom, a large kitchenette, a living room which can be converted into a second bedroom, and a sea view balcony. All rooms are air-conditioned and all bathrooms have a bathtub with a shower.
There’s free Wi-fi throughout, a sauna, a well-equipped gym, and an outdoor swimming pool and sun terrace overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
During the day, Praia’s an excellent jumping-off point from which to explore the island, either by car or with our resident guides, and the peaceful waters of the bay are a popular spot for kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. In the evenings, Praia da Vitoria’s waterfront restaurants serve some of the best seasonal Azorean cuisine on the island: restaurants like O Pescador, La Barca and Sabores do Chef and all within easy walking distance.
