    The largest island S. Miguel is often referred to as the "Green Island" due to its lush landscapes, including rolling hills, crater lakes, and hot springs. The island also boasts unique attractions such as the Furnas Valley, where geothermal activity creates bubbling hot springs and traditional slow-cooked dishes. An enamoring sight that you must not miss is the twin lakes of Sete Cidades and the backdrop for a magical tale of two lovers.

    Terceira stands out for its vibrant festivals and historic charm. The island's capital, Angra do Heroísmo, is a UNESCO World Heritage site with cobbled streets, colorful buildings, and impressive churches. The Sanjoaninas festival is a highlight, featuring lively parades, concerts, and traditional bull-running events.

    3. Pico: Majestic Mountain and Whaling Heritage

    Pico is dominated by its namesake peak, Mount Pico is the highest point in Portugal. The island is also known for its unique vineyards, grown in black volcanic soil, which produce the famous Verdelho wine. Additionally, Pico has a strong whaling history, showcased in the Whaling Museum, providing insights into the relationship between the islanders and the sea.

    4. Faial: Volcanic Oasis

    Characterized by its lunar-like landscape due to the volcanic activity of the island and in particular the Capelinhos Volcano eruption in 1957. Faial is a must-visit for sailing enthusiasts. The marina at Horta is a stopping point for sailors crossing the Atlantic, leaving behind colorful murals that adorn the harbor walls. The Island is also commonly referred to as the "Blue Island" due to its abundance of hydrangea flowers.

    São Jorge is renowned for its cheese, produced for centuries using traditional methods, and is defined by its steep cliffs and lush valleys. The Fajãs, flat coastal areas formed by volcanic activity, provide unique landscapes great for a lovely hike or swim.
