The Azores region

If you want to experience life in the country, Azorean style, this is the place to come! You may see horses, oxen and donkeys working as pack animals, plowing or pulling carts. During the local festivals ox-carts and even goat-carts are used to carry bread, wine and cheese in a decorative procession.

From the main town of Horta and its modern marina you can go whale watching, swimming with dolphins, deep sea, coastal and sport fishing, diving and sailing. These are the main attractions, along with a visit to our spectacular "Caldeira", and the dramatic moonscape of the Capelinhos eruption site and lighthouse, which now boasts an impressive underground interpretation centre.

There are passenger ferries to Pico and Sao Jorge, allowing you to explore two more islands during your stay on Faial. Pico boasts the highest mountain in Portugal, a whaling museum, whaling factory, vineyards which feature on the UNESCO World Heritage sites list, the wine factory and fascinating lava tube caves. Sao Jorge is simply a beautiful, quiet island, ridged with volcanic craters and edged by cliffs sheltering pretty villages - the "fajas". The cheese factory is always a favourite visit on this island.

Horta

Explore the dramatic volcanic sites of the Caldeira and Capelinhos, the picturesque villages and the main town of Horta, with its marina full of colourful paintings left by visiting yachts. The famous "Peter's Cafe Sport" is the perfect place to stop for coffee or a cold drink, where sailors swap tales of adventure on the high seas.

Whale and dolphin watching trips have replaced the traditional whaling boats as a way to make a living from the sea. From the marina you can go whale watching, swimming with dolphins, snorkelling with rays and sharks, sport fishing, line fishing, diving and sailing, or just take a cruise along our scenic coastline. Jeep safaris and bicycle hire are also available.

Passenger ferries enable you to visit Pico island, with it's lava tube caves, vineyards, museums and the highest peak in Portugal to climb! Or Sao Jorge, with it's beautiful fajas, handicraft workshops and popular cheese factory visit, making Faial a perfect centre for your holiday.

The "Semana do Mar" or Sea Week, which begins on the first Sunday in August, is organized by various institutions connected with water sports and tourism. It includes all sorts of activities connected with the sea, as well as other cultural events, and has become internationally famous.
