While you're there, make sure to sample some of the regional cheeses, handmade on the island, famous for its strong, cheddar taste.

Santa Maria

Santa Maria is the most southern island of the Azores, consequently making it the sunniest and warmest. It has rolling hills and amazing coves and cliffs, fantastic for you to sink your teeth into and explore.

Santa Maria's claim to fame is its craftwork, with most Residents owning a handmade patchwork blanket or quilt, spun on a loom on this very island.
