Travel Photography Faial Azores

Faial Island | Azores, Portugal

Last summer we took a trip to the Azores islands, more specifically the central group that consists of Faial, Pico and São Jorge.  These volcanic islands are absolutely spectacular and still relatively undiscovered… and hopefully they stay that way. Faial is a stopping point on most transatlantic sailboat voyages so in spite of it being a tiny island lost in the middle of the ocean, the vibe here is super international, with the sailing crowd from all over the world in town, fixing boats, topping up supplies and just generally taking advantage of a few days on land.

São Miguel, Azores

The second place I got to visit in the Azores was the island of São Miguel… we flew in to photograph a wedding and spent a few days on the island, exploring. One thing you need to be prepared for on these islands is rain… lots of it, and always when you least expect it. We were lucky in Terceira and only got rain on the last day. São Miguel, unfortunately, wasn’t so kind to us (or our wedding couple!) but in spite of the weather (or maybe because of it… ) this place is incredible. Black rocky beaches, clear…
