Azores: the Atlantic surf island

The Azores Islands, a Portuguese archipelago located in the Atlantic Ocean, is one the most uncrowded top surf spots in Europe.

There are nine islands with huge surfing potential - S. Miguel, Santa Maria, Terceira, S. Jorge, Graciosa, Faial, Pico, Flores and Corvo.

Recently, the town of Angra do Heroísmo, in the Terceira island, has been elected world heritage site by Unesco. Also the National Geographic considers Azores the second best world islands destiny for natural sustained tourism.

In the last month, two Azorean sites were included in the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal: Lagoa das Sete Cidades and Pico Island won categories. The nine islands are divided in three groups: Western, Central and Eastern group.

If you're looking for perfect waves, uncrowded peaks and wonderful food, then Azores is just for you. You can easily travel to Azores through Lisbon or Porto, in mainland Portugal.

Get ready to watch a surf film that finally features surfers riding waves. Thank you for focusing on what really matters, "Blue Intensity."
