Dubbed the ‘Hawaii of the Atlantic’, the Azores is an archipelago of nine islands in the Atlantic which is just a two-hour flight from Lisbon and a six-hour flight from New York.
With turquoise lagoons, vivid green meadows and black lava fields, each of these islands is a kaleidoscope of colour.
The second-largest island in the Azores, Pico Island is home to the highest point in Portugal and its unique vineyards have been recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site since 2004. From hiking and mountain climbing through to paddle boarding and diving in the crystal-clear Atlantic, Pico Island is perfect for those who love to explore. Home to more than 20 species of whales and dolphins, this collection of islands is one of the best destinations in the world for whale watching.
