Ponta Delgada from east showing some of the major birding sites: To the west. The large pier at the western part of the harbour. From top of this there are good views over both the sea and the inner part of the harbour. In the centre. Ponta Delgada water treatment (ETAR) at the end of the avenue near S. Roque with a rocky area with tidal pools and plenty of food for shorebirds. To the east. Praia do Populo with beaches and rocks, often good for divers, shorebirds, gulls and terns.
