Praia do Pópulo
The most "urban" surf spot in São Miguel. A fairly consistent break, Pópulo is located on the edge of the Ponta Delgada, the largest municipality and the administrative capital of the Azores. Often crowded on a more post work schedule, since most of the local surfers are able to surf it before or after work, it can be surfed with fewer people out during the rest of the day.
It usually breaks on all tides but is often better on mid tides. The best swell are from the Southwest, South and Southeast and it can be surfed from 0.5 meters to 2 meters.
