Overview

Flores is an island of incomparable beauty due to its different geological structure, jagged terrain, beautiful flora and wonderful mountain lakes. Waterfalls plunge down green cliffs into the ocean, the landscape has deep creases formed by eons of volcanic activity, and tiny whitewashed villages nestle on the coastal plains.

Highlights

Stay in the western-most village in Europe, Fajã Grande. It's just gorgeous, backed by a natural bowl with myriad cascades, tropical foliage and romantic pools. It's also the mid-way point for the spectacular west coast walking trail.
Visit the fascinating Whaling Museum in the little capital of Santa Cruz on the east coast. Housed in the former Boqueirão whaling factory, it provides an insight into the old whaling industry.
Take a boat trip for the day to neighbouring Corvo and explore the Azores' smallest island or just explore the Flores coast to witness the waterfalls cascading to the sea and the numerous rocky islets and arches.

Activities

Whether you choose to have a romantic relaxing honeymoon or you want to walk the whole west coast and canyon down the ribeiras, Flores is a jewel not to be missed.

Accommodation

Stay in stone cottages in an abandoned village brought back to life or a guesthouse at the westernmost point of Europe. Flores' accommodation reflects it quiet natural beauty so be prepared for warm welcomes and unique places.
