Bombas Beach is a 2 km (1.2 mi) stretch of white sand and crystal clear waters, which range from a deep blue to emerald green. The unusual name Bombas Beach--or "Beach of Bombs"--is said to come from the Azorean explorers who discovered the region. The explorers heard the rumbling of waves through the jungle and mistook it for explosions. Along the beachfront, you will find plentiful restaurants and shops, should you find yourself lacking any supplies.

  • I hadn't visited this beach in about 10 years. The boardwalk gave a new life to the waterfront. Night lighting improved what was already cool. Many bars, great restaurants and kiosks. Doubling of the route of arrival of the main avenue gave more mobility to traffic. Many properties for sale and rent.

  • Accessible beach, spacious, msr with small waves, ideal for family with children. Beautiful seaside fish for sports such as cycling, roller, running or walking. Beautiful night lighting to enjoy the beach also at night.
