Sao Miguel is one of nine islands of the Azores archipelago, the biggest and most populated. Lush green hills and massive cliffs drop into the wild Atlantic ocean.
The annual SATA Airlines Azores Pro brings some of the world’s best surfers to the iconic Santa Barbara beach since 2009. The event has seen its share of drama in the ever-important qualifying points race and delivered a few epic sessions in pumping waves.
Located on the North shore of Sao Miguel, Santa Barbara is a secluded black-sand beach producing powerful surf. Several peaks break along the beach with the main two sitting at both extremities.
