Santa Cruz das Flores Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Rent a car at Santa Cruz das Flores Airport. This beautiful island is all about enjoying the outdoors, so drive your rental straight to one of the Lajes das Flores beaches or to the rocky Fajã Grande Beach. Swim in natural tidal pools at Santa Cruz, spend a day at the Morro Alto and Pico do Se Natural Forest Reserve, visit one of the diving centers, or hike in the canyons.

In the town of Lajes, check out the Matriz da Lomba Church. In Santa Cruz, the Flores Museum and the Ponta do Albernaz Lighthouse are fun places to visit. So is the Boqueirao Environmental Interpretation Center, to learn about the area’s natural history. And you’re sure to have an excellent time on a whale watching tour.

Flores is a wonderful destination, so why not stay longer and explore more? With a longer-term car rental deal, you can visit the island’s less touristy areas and see how the locals live. If your car rental provider permits it, you can even take a ferry to one of the other Azores islands. It’s easy to pick up your rental car at Santa Cruz das Flores Airport and drop it off at a different location. Start planning your adventure today!

What I don't like has nothing with Ilha Verde. It's Renault car - diesel with economy engine, typical for many European cars.
