Flores, Azores . . . A Great First Stop

For those crossing the Atlantic to Europe, a new harbor and marina has been built (and still more) on the western most island of the Azores - Flores.
A great little, picturesque and most welcoming island.
At the moment all services (docking, water, electricity, showers, WiFi) are free of charge and there is no entry fee as well.
Customs, as are the inhabitants, are extremely friendly and welcoming and will do everything to help you.
A must before continuing to the more popular (and MUCH more expensive) Horta on Faial.
Fair winds
