The Atlantic’s Garden

Away from the beaten path, 321 miles (517km) from Sao Miguel – 1½ hours flight, the island of flowers is a land of spectacular natural beauty and a real find for nature enthusiasts.

Towering cliffs, a multitude of lakes, waterfalls, small pastures bordered by mile after mile of hydrangea hedges and spectacular views await at every turn.

Holidays In Flores

Santa Cruz, located on the east coast of Flores, is a small village of narrow streets, local snack bars and natural rock pools. The capital is an ideal base from which to explore the island.

Situated on the seashore of a coastal plain, Faja Grande is enclosed by a high cliff with about 20 waterfalls. The village is also home to a small pebble beach and is a noted area for Nearctic land birds.

This peaceful settlement of some 200 inhabitants attracts walkers from all over the world. Two marked trails, 8.5km and 11km respectively, finish in the village and the combination of the two equates to walking the length of the continents westernmost coastline. A unique opportunity!

Area: 143 sq. km

Rocha dos Bordoes
Of particular interest is the ‘organ pipes’ – a geological phenomenon formed by the solidification of basalt in high vertical channels which dominates the landscape above the village of Mosteiro on the west coast.
