This hike from Ponta Delgada towards Faja Grande is probably one of the most beautiful ones on the small island of Flores (Azores, Portugal). Especially this last part is breathtaking because of the beautiful view, but also because you are hiking just near the cliffs.

Photography Tips

Since this is a beautiful hiking trail, this is one of the perfect spots to include persons within the photo to give the shot a better dimension. Therefore a tripod and a remote control is recommended.

Travel Information

This hike is quite exhausting and has some dangerous parts, so definitely don't try to walk it without sturdy shoes. As you can see at this spot in the background, the path sometimes gets very narrow and there is nothing that can protect you from slipping down the cliffs.

You can leave your car at Faja Grande and start there or start at Ponta Delgada and take a Taxi to get back. Unfortunately there is no direct road connection between these 2 towns, so the tour by car is quite long.
