Extend your stay to Faial Island, facing the Horta Marina. 

The most famous marina in the Azores is one of the most visited ports in the world. Its privileged geographical position has been recognised for centuries. It is a well-established tradition that sailors that dock in Faial must leave a painting on the walls of the breakwater. Legend has it that sailors that do this will reach their destinations safely.

The half day Jeep tour to Sete Cidades was great… We were even able to see one of the other islands! The experience took my breath away, it was magical. Amazing service level and knowledge from the guides. I loved every second of this holiday and will be boring my friends and family for months to come I’m sure. – Susan Windsor May 2022
