Boasting landscapes of extreme contrasts, Pico is the second largest island of the Portuguese Azores central group. The island is named after Mt Pico, Portugal's highest mountain at 2,351m.
Pico is one of the Azores' most stunning and overlooked islands. Breathtakingly beautiful and positioned at the Azorean central group's centre, Pico is just 11 miles from S Jorge Island and less than five miles from Faial Island.
The island's landscape has been created by a unique blend of exotic flora and lava rock. This frequently changing panorama envelops this scarcely populated destination. The Azores' finest swimming spots can be found here, along with occasional sandy beach areas.
Pico Island is an ideal destination for walking, bird watching, trekking, hiking, swimming, fishing, motorcycling, and dolphin and whale spotting. The western part of the island boasts vineyards which produce the renowned Verdelho wine.
Visitors will find a good selection of accommodation options here. Tranquillity and serenity can be appreciated around nearly every corner. However, there's always the option of heading to the lively village and absorbing the local's colourful cultural traditions.
It is possible to fully explore the island by hire car, a popular mode of transport. Renting a car on-the-spot is not recommended if you want to secure a good deal. Pre-booking car hire online is the only way to make sure that the type of car you want will be available when you arrive.
