Azores Travel: The Best Hidden Gem In Europe

Bem vindo aos A├žores!

The Azores are often called ‘the Hawaii of Europe’ and when you see them, you’ll understand why! From black sand beaches to Europe’s only tea plantations, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained. The nature of the Azores is truly outstanding, and you can find here some of the most incredible waterfalls and natural scenery in the world.

In recent years, the islands have become less of a hidden gem and more of a bucket list destination for many. Each of the 9 islands is beautiful and worth visiting in its own way, but they still remain relatively quiet. This makes it the perfect destination in Europe for those still looking to get off the beaten track. Additionally, the islands have won certifications for their sustainability efforts – we love a sustainable travel destination!
