Lajes Air Base Terceira Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Known not just for its typically Azorean volcanic landscape but also for some seriously impressive historical landmarks, Terceira is one of the best alternatives to the main island of the archipelago, São Miguel. These are three of its most interesting attractions:

  • Angra do Heroísmo. One of the three co-capitals of the Azores, Angra is better known for being a fortress of great historical importance, a fact that has been recognized by UNESCO. Many of the medieval landmarks survive in a good condition to this day – these include several fortresses, palaces, and gardens. Angra do Heroísmo is on the south-central coast of the island and also has many of Terceira’s most popular accommodation options.
  • Biscoito and Ferraria Forest Park. Located in the north-central part of the island, this small but scenic nature area is another gem not to be missed. In addition to beautiful scenery and a chance to swim in volcanic pools, the area is known for its traditional green wine and local delicacies. 
  • Diving. In addition to many other water sports that can be practiced in the Azores, Terceira has a reputation as something of a diving and snorkeling mecca. Sites, instructors, and places to rent equipment can be found all across the island, but there’s an especially strong concentration of them around Praia da Vitória, a town on the northeastern coast that’s a lovely place to visit for this and other reasons.

the island of Terceira is beautiful, the people are friendly and helpful, driving on the island is fairly easy, some of the streets are a little tight to maneuver but everyone on the roads is respectful of each other.

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.
