photos: Praia Baixu

I guess I’ll make April a month for recapping our recent excursions around the island…

These photos are from February, when Adam and I took a day trip to the beach at Praia Baixu. February is off-season at the beach, which meant you could count the people there on two hands. It made for a nice quiet day. Praia Baixu is fairly close to us and direct to get to, but the number of cars is limited. We waited about an hour for a Hiace (public van) to get there, and then lucked out with a bolea (free ride) for the return trip to the main road. We checked out the tide pools (and for me, the cool rocks and cliffs), took a walk through the very small town of Praia Baixu, and had an expensive and tasty tourist-restaurant lunch (none of the restaurants for locals are open regularly during the off-season). I loved this spot.
