Azores Holiday destination Information
The Azores are made up of 9 islands situated in the Atlantic ocean. The islands are each as beautiful as one an other and are picture perfect with flowers and rolling fields, vistas of the sea and blue lagoons. The fertile volcanic soil gives them a lush and varied vegetation - hydrangeas, camellias, hibiscus and magnolias can be seen everywhere.
The largets of the islands is Sao Miguel at 290 square miles and the smallest island in the Azores is Corvos at 7 square miles. The islands are approximately 2 hours from Lisbon and 5 hours from the East coast of America. The cosmopolitan town of Ponta Delgada on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores is a pleasure to visit.
