Flores Travel Guide

The resort island of Flores, most northerly of the Azores group and sited somewhat remote from its companions, is literally the island of 'flowers', carpeted with numerous wildflowers and hydrangea clusters among impossibly green hills and white-washed villages. The main features of the island to enjoy on holiday are seven serene lakes in volcanic craters and the Enxareus Grotto, a huge volcanic cave. The main town, Lajes, is a picturesque fishing port set in green fields. All the island's towns and villages have their historic chapels and churches to be admired while on holiday, and Flores also features watermills and windmills, and an ethnographic museum in the town of Santa Cruz which displays objects relating to the activities of the island population: fishing, whaling and praying. Near the village of Fajazinha is the stunning Ribeira Grande waterfall with its massive 984ft (300m) drop.
