Pico Island



'One of the top twenty islands in the world to live on'

Revista Islands, 2007

Ilhas do Triângulo

There is no other place
in the world like Pico.


The island is worth exploring as well as the remaining islands of the Azorean Triangle, especially due to their diversified landscape: the Capelinhos Volcano on Faial Island, the fajãs of São Jorge Island and the Pico Mountain are only some of the examples. There is so much to discover!

Pico Island lies 8.3 km from Faial and 15 km from São Jorge thus creating with these islands an accessible and irresistible triangle. To visit these islands is a permanent invitation and challenge for those who are staying at Pico, thus having a very central position.

There are daily flight connections to Lisbon through the airports of Faial, Terceira and Ponta Delgada and once week a non-stop flight to Lisbon from Pico.

There are also charters flights that connect several European cities to the Azores.
