Faial Island, jutting out of the magnificent Atlantic Ocean, is a part of the Azores archipelago located off the west coast of the Portuguese mainland. Also known as Blue Island after the plentiful hydrangea blooms found here in summer, its secluded coves and pristine beaches offer you a relaxing getaway. This volcanic island is a treasure trove of natural wonders with just the right sprinkling of urban comforts. From the bustling town of Horta that sits by a beautiful harbor to the dramatic moonscapes in the interiors, there is plenty to keep you busy. The island’s deep-rooted ties to agriculture and dairy farming ensure that its cuisine is a sensory feast. Charming cafes frequented by sailors as well as fine restaurants serve up exotic delicacies with seafood and local cheeses as the main ingredients. Meanwhile, the many cultural festivals held here throughout the year are perfect for gaining valuable insights into local traditions.
