The Azores is an archipelago in the waters of the Atlantic ocean, one and a half thousand kilometers far from mainland Portugal. Carthaginians used to float here, Vikings and Normans visited the archipelago and Columbus listened to the Mass at the local church, going back home from America. The Azores were prized by navigators as a cross-waterway between continents. Nowadays, travelers are attracted by something different, it is a yacht rent on the Azores.
The name of the archipelago comes from the word “azure”. Not only water has a special shade here. Thanks to the blooming hibiscus and hydrangea thickets, the islands look greenish-blue from a distance. There are nine of them.
Besides hiking and beach rest during the stops over you should go diving because there are fish and shellfish in the Azores waters that you will not find anywhere else.
There are three international airports in the archipelago — Santa Maria, San Miguel and Terceira. Yachtsmen arrive from March to October. Rental rules are the same as in the rest of Portugal. Most often, skippers choose a cruise between the central islands with short passages or a trip to the western/eastern part of the archipelago with longer passages.
