- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
This spot at Porto do Comprido with a view towards Vulcao dos Capelinhos on the left and the lighthouse called Farol da Ponta dos Capelinhos on the right is one of the most beautiful places on Faial Island, Azores, Portugal. You have everything that is awesome for photography within one place: Different great composition opportunities for the foreground with the rock formations in the water and a really nice background with the unique shape of the area where the volcano erupted in 1958.

This place in the north-west of Faial is very easy to reach by car. The volcanic region is well-signposted from Horta. You can leave your car nearby at the waterfront. Just make sure that you have sturdy shoes with you, because the rocks are extremely sharp and sometimes slippery. As always at the ocean, you should definitely pay attention to the tide, because you don't want to get stuck by the rising waterlevel on the rocks.
