The Azores Mini Guide

The Azores are an archipelago of islands which lie off of the Portuguese coast and are sparsely inhabited.  The islands of the Azores are split into the Eastern, Western and Central Groups. São Miguel, Santa Maria and the Formigas Islets are part of the Eastern group, Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial are in the centre and Flores and Corvo make up the Western group. There are five cities in the Azores. They are Ponta Delgada and Ribeira Grande on the São Miguel Island. Angra do Heroísmo and Praia da Vitória are on the island of Terceira and Horta is on the island of Faial. It takes around two hours to fly to the Azores from Lisbon and TAP Portugal is one of the airlines which offer these flights.

Once there you can get around the islands easily by car, and if you want to do a lot of exploring you may even wish to hire a Jeep.
