In the middle of the Atlantic lies São Jorge, the Dragon Island.
One of the most luxurious green Islands of the Azores.
If you enjoy being at one with nature, you will be happy to know that this island has much to offer in outdoor activities, such as nature walks, bike riding, swimming, fishing (angling or underwater fishing)...
São Jorge has the essential attractions in order for you to spend unforgettable days.
Underwater fishing is very appealing due to the richness of our ocean's fauna and flora and it's interesting rock formations.
As an alternative to underwater observation, you can turn to the Whale Watching companies and spend some time with these magnificent mammals (as with the dolphins).
Be sure to taste all the island delicacies, such as the local tuna and the world acclaimed S. Jorge Cheese.
São Jorge it's a mystical place, with all the fajãs and the misty mountains, a place you'll never forget.
A final note for all the surfers - Some say it has the best surf spot in Europe, so all you surfers be aware!

There was a group of french tourist which was very noisy at night. Because we were with a family with children this was a grat problem. So we left oned day sooner than we wanted to. I am dissapointed that we did no get a part of our money back for that single night. The staff told us we had to cancel 24 hours before leaving. I think that is good service if you pay back a part of the money if a guest has to leave because pf the disturbance of other guests ans the staff can't help it.
