Flores Holidays

holidays to flores

The quintessential Azores island
Holidays on Flores feature a staggeringly scenic island even by Azores standards. Flores holidays attract true Azores aficionados. The island’s undoubted isolation is offset by magical, almost other-worldly volcanic landscapes, with intensely green pastures, wild flowers, gorgeous crater lakes, vast skies and beautifully blue seas. Add an astonishingly rugged coastline with vast cliffs, caves and tiny islets, and you can see why many visitors feel Flores holidays capture the best of the Azores in a single island.

Visit tiny Corvo

Flores holidays cannot fail to leave a lasting impression. This wonderfully lush island has a population of just 4000. Most Flores holidays are based around Lajes and Santa Cruz, the principal towns on the island. Santa Cruz has a charmingly modest selection of hospitable hotels, cafes and restaurants, and a nice collection of typically quaint churches. All Flores holidays should include a complete tour of the island, on incredible roads affording amazing views. Holidays in Flores could include a day trip to the tiny neighbouring island of Corvo. Both ferries and planes connect Flores with Corvo.

Tremendous walking
Walking holidays on Flores offer tremendous variety and unforgettable experiences: colourful farmland, intensely green pastures, gorgeous semi-tropical valleys, nature reserves, superb coast walks, spectacular waterfalls and fine forests. All walking holidays should include the Faja do Lopo Vaz, with its lush tropical vegetation and beach, the lakes of Lagoas, formed in the island’s volcanic craters, and Moro Alto, the island’s highest mountain at nearly 3000 feet. Holidays on Flores offer fantastic opportunities for cliff and lake fishing, exciting big game fishing, diving, sea and crater kayaking and island boat tours. In common with many Azores holidays, Flores is beginning to offer dolphin and whale watching trips. Flores holidays are also very popular with keen birdwatchers.

Flores weather
The mild summer temperatures allow visitors on holiday to Flores to explore the island at their leisure without being too overwhelmed by the sun. The sub-tropical climate has proved to be very beneficial for the indigenous plant life, and as a result Flores is green all year round. There are many nature trails to keep a family holiday to Flores occupied, and most of them will lead visitors to unspoilt areas of natural beauty, like the many waterfalls dotted around the island. While the temperature can hit the late twenties during July and August, it often averages at a pleasantly warm 23C - perfect conditions for a spot of volcano exploration.
