Portugal 3 Island View, Sao Jorge, Azores

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
This spot on the island of Sao Jorge (Azores) is probably one of the most beautiful ones since it offers a view over 3 islands: Sao Jorge in the foreground itself and in the back the island of Pico with the mountain Pico (the highest mountain of Portugal) on the left side and the island of Faial on the right side.

Photography Tips

The stone walls offer a great opportunity to use them as a leading line into your frame towards the back of your photo with the beautiful Pico mountain and the fact that there are 3 islands just within one single photo. A panorama is also a great choice at this place that you could shoot vertical with a little bit of zoom to focus more on the islands and the horizon itself.
Sunset seems to be the best time for this spot because you are photographing towards the west.

Travel Information

This spot is really easy to reach and not that far from the airport of Sao Jorge. You can simply leave your car near the street as long as you are not parking on the street itself. There is usually very low traffic and when you use a parking bay that should be fine.

Important: Keep in mind that this is private property. As long as you shoot from the street you are fine of course but as soon as you want to enter the field itself you need permission and ask if you are allowed to because there are cows on the field.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people
