Sete Cidades

The Azores are, without a doubt, a destination for every taste: there are golf courses among flowers and lush vegetation, walking trails shaped to enjoy nature and watch birds, native plants and volcanic phenomena, whale and marine life watching, as well as inviting grey sand beaches where you can spend hours of joy, whether swimming in a calm sea or surfing. You can also play tennis, sail, go on horseback rides or adventure yourself in big game fishing. These are just some of the numberless activities you can experience in order to have some unforgettable holidays.
