Sao Jorge’s long, slender shape is quite unlike any of the other islands of the Azores. 55km long and only 7km at its widest point. The island was formed by a linear volcanic fissure – a tectonic plate boundary which extends 200km east all the way to the main island of Sao Miguel. The island is famous for it’s fajas – coastal plateaus which are home to many of the island’s smaller villages. The fajas are formed by different processes – by ancient landslides in the north where the seacliffs are steepest, creating the best natural swimming pools in the Azores. The cliffs on the south coast are less-steep and many of the southern fajas were formed by lava flows. Walking the island’s excellent network of hiking trails with our resident guide is a great way to explore the fajas.
Sao Jorge is a great island for a split-stay when paired up with neighbour Terceira, and one of our most popular walking holidays is our Terceira & Sao Jorge guided walking holiday – exploring Sao Jorge’s beautiful coastal landscapes on foot.
