Hi there

Planning to go to Azores for 8 days to relax, enjoy great food and the beach.

Diving options would be a plus and sandy beaches too, anyb hints please?

the main Azores turistical circuit includes Terceira, Pico, Sao Miguel and Faial so if you want to avoid them go to other islands.
the best beaches are in Faial, Terceira and Sao Miguel. the only sandy beach are in Sao Miguel and not very big.
food is good everywhere.
the best place to dive is Flores.

have fun

I hope someone can give me informations :)

In December I'll go to Azores because of weddings of a couple of friends. So, I am looking for informations about flight (I arrive from Portuguese continent: I am not sure whether Oporto or Lisbon, it depends on my friends there) and accomodation in Ponta Delgada.

I read somewhere thta it's possible to see whales: is it true? i'd love to have this possibility!

Thanks to everyone!

To LuisaMiao,

I would suggest checking for flights. English and Portuguese text. As a student, one can travel for almost half as cheap. If you're not a student, they usually have travel deals. Also, you could check TAP air, but I haven't been very successful there.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot :)

Unlucky, I'm not a student anymore but I'll check to find something cheap.
