The island where LEA SIRK, from SLOVENIA, filmed her Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Postcard
There are nine wonderful islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where you can find all kinds of landscapes and experiences. Faial, in the central group, with a high point at 1,043 metres above sea level, provides a breath-taking view of Pico Island and, on clear days, as far as Graciosa Island (144km away).
HOW TO GET THERE?
You can get to Faial Island by plane, with flights from São Miguel and Terceira Islands, from Lisbon, Porto and some European capitals, like London.
WHAT TO DO?
Faial is one of the most beautiful islands in the archipelago and deserves your full attention. Two suggestions: The Capelinhos Volcano, where the last volcanic eruption in Azores happened, in 1958, and Caldeira, an ancient volcano that is the genesis of the island.
WHAT NOT TO MISS?
Being an island, the cuisine of Faial is full of excellent flavours from the sea. The fish broth and stew or the stewed octopus with wine are just two of the typical dishes of the island.
