Flores Holidays

The 'island of flowers', Flores, is one of the most beautiful islands to see on a holiday to the Azores. It is home to iconic basalt columns at Rocha dos Bordoes and astounding views over lakes and rugged valleys from Morro Alt, the highest point on the island at 914 metres. This is the island to visit for escapism and reconnection with nature: fantastic craggy cliffs overlook the ocean, and inland small pastures of every shade of green are bordered by mile after mile of hydrangea hedges. Measuring just 17 km long, 12.5 km at its widest and with a total area of 142 sq km, the island receives the most rainfall in the Azores, so waterfalls, lagoons and lakes pay a huge part in the makeup of the natural incredible scenery. 

The furthest-flung of all the islands, this Flores marks the westernmost tip of both the archipelago and of Europe. Like Graciosa and Corvo islands, Flores is also listed a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Spend a few days on Flores, and add a day-trip to nearby Corvo. Here both photography and hiking opportunities abound. The centre of the island houses seven different lakes, waterfalls which gush spectacularly after rain, and four peaks that beg to be climbed: Sete Pes, Burrinha, Marcela and Morro Alto.
