Faial Island


Faial Island, with spectacular views from Monte da Guia, Caldeira do Cabeço Gordo’s large crater or the lunar landscape of Capelinhos volcano, from its recent eruption which created a new islet are must-see stops during your visit to the island.


Here time passes at the sweet sound of ocean waves, making us dive into the tranquility and harmony of the island colours.   The greens are still a staple of these unique sites, in particular at the Caldeira, with its breathtaking views and the ever-present colorful hydrangeas.  The blues invite you in a crystalline and clear sea, rich with colorful fish, blue and white rapiers, tuna, which present a challenging deep sea fishing experience.

As a mandatory stop for those who cross the Atlantic, yachtsmen from all over the globe visit the world famous Peter Café Sport for the customary and invigorating gin tonic before they explore the beautiful and unique views of Faial Island and mingle with its hospitable folk.
