Vila Franca do Campo is a town in the southern part of the island of São Miguel in the Portuguese Autonomous Region of the Azores. The islet came about following the collapse of a former volcano. After being used for many purposes – from a military fort to a vineyard – the islet was classified as a nature reserve in 1983.

So small and so subjugating. The beach looks great to stay all summer. The photos are great.
Magnifique endroit ! Ils ont bien fait de le sauvegarder en réserve naturelle 🙂
