About Faial

Faial is part of the Central Group in the Azores, a Portuguese archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean.

The coastline has some beautiful volcanic beaches, whilst the western shoreline has dramatic cliffs plunging into the bright blue ocean. Out on the seas, you can enjoy a wide range of activities like windsurfing, kayaking, diving and whale watching.

The inland is dominated by an enormous crater which was the location of the most recent major volcanic activity in the Azores, adding roughly 1 kilometre to the landmass in 1957. You can even traverse the scenic, hilly terrain on mountain bikes or on a guided 4x4 SUV tour.

From the vibrant port town of Horta on the southeast coast, you can choose from a wide range of sailings to most islands in the Azores. Given the archipelago is spread sparsely in the North Atlantic, the journey times to each island can vary considerably.

About Flores

Flores forms part of the Western Group in the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores, a group of small islands spread across the North Atlantic.

The island gets its name from the prevalence of wild flowers, mostly blue or pink in colour, and many other indigenous botanical species. The floral population also earned Flores a place on the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve list in 2009, so you’re guaranteed some breath-taking scenic walks.

Flores also has plenty of exciting opportunities for climbers and mountaineers. Particularly the Groto de Enxareus, a vast cavern measuring fifty metres long and twenty five metres wide. Morro Alto is the highest point, reaching over nine hundred metres, offering wonderful views of the crater lakes as well.

In terms of cultural appeal, Flores is home to the westernmost town in Europe, Faja Grande, whilst the small town of Fajazinha on the west coast is known for its pretty, ruinous water mills and white washed houses.

You can reach Flores from every island in the Azores by ferry, arriving in Lajes Das Flores on the south coast. There are slightly more sailings from the neighbouring island of Corvo to the north. Ferries on this route also dock in Santa Cruz, found just up the coast.
