Framed by the ocean,
island that flirts in the wind,
in the immensity of blue.
The island of Faial is separated from the island of Pico by a narrow 8.3 km wide arm of sea known as the Faial-Pico Channel.

So much to discover
Horta, the seaside town with centuries of history
Located in a sheltered bay, with a privileged view to the island of Pico and to the island of São Jorge, the city’s life revolves around its connection with the sea, with the Port and with the Marina, which is one of the busiest in the world. The best way to feel and discover the city of Horta is to walk around it, exploring the streets and places of natural and cultural interest.
Porto Pim Bay
The Porto Pim Bay, contemplates the Monte Queimado Hill and the Monte da Guia Nature Reserve, which delimit the bay area, the Porto Pim Bay is a unique spot of natural beauty and great historical and cultural interest where most of our lodgings are located.
A visit to the Whaling Factory and the Dabney House is a must, as well as the “Entre Montes” trail which runs through the Monte da Guia Protected Landscape Area.
If you’re a fan of snorkelling you’re in the right place, in the calm waters of the bay, you can observe a wide variety of fish species and the remains of a shipwreck from 1892.
If you’re in the Azores, you can’t miss this opportunity. Whale watching began in 1989 following more than 300 years of whale hunting. From Faial and Pico, several men on land – lookouts – guide boats daily to observe sperm whales, blue whales and several species of resident dolphins.
With an average of 2 to 3 species observed per three-hour trip, it is a living culture and today it is a symbol of the conservation of large cetaceans and one of the best places to observe them. 30% of the world’s species can be seen.

Great value for money place. Very helpful and friendly staff. Restaurants nearby. Great place to any Faial trips!
A very nicely presented, and well-equipped, guest house, located a short walk from the real centre of Horta, next to the lovely bay of Porto Pim. In addition, it's owned and run by a scientific research organization, so by staying here, you're supporting their work.
