Azores: Sailing Activity Holiday
Europe's Best Kept Secret
A sailing holiday in the Azores is a wonderful way to experience these remote and picturesque islands. Sailing holiday options include island hopping, or sailing from island to island, and making the journey to Madeira and back (4-5 days each way). Chartered trips of 4 and 8 hours sailing off the coast of São Miguel cost 55€ and 85€, respectively, while weekends trips to the island of Santa Maria are about 515€. Day sailing trips around Faial run about 65€. A more ambitious sailing holiday would be to sail all the way between the Caribbean islands and the Azores.
