We visited Faial, Pico and Terceira during an 8 day trip - all beautiful islands and each special in its own way. The natural beauty of these islands is amazing, locals are so warm and friendly and food is great- glad we rented a car so we could explore everywhere at our own pace. Looking forward to going back to the Azores again.

Driving in the Azores is easy as speeds are low in the city and drivers are not aggressive. Major highways are outstanding, excellent condition, well signed and no traffic! Roundabouts have little traffic. Lots of free parking in Angra near the marina. In towns watch the blind corners as some drivers do cross the centre line.
