2. Flores Island

Azores - Portugal

The island of Flores is one of the Best European Destinations for a Digital Detox and reconnection with nature. Fairly easy to access from the main island of Ponta Delgada (1h15 by plane), Flores is with Corvo, the westernmost island of the Azores archipelago.


Cascata da Ribeira do Ferreiro (Poço da Alagoinha) is a must-see during your stay in Flores. Meditate with your eyes wide open, watch the different shades of colours, the thousand variations of green, the sunrays or clouds that can change the landscape in the blink of an eye. Garden of Eden? Jurassic Park? don’t think too much about what that might look like or surf the Internet, just go (be sure to wear the right shoes)!  Park your car upstream, walk for a while then sit on a tree trunk or the luscious grass and watch the landscape: you will remain speechless. 


During your stay at Flores we recommend the "tortas de erva patinha", a typical local dish; this "duck leg pie" is neither a pie nor duck meat: it's a tasty omelette mixed with coastal seaweed. The Azoreans who live on the continent all have the “saudade” (nostalgia) of this typical Azorean dish.


Do not miss the delicious jams from the guava tree and the honey which owes its intense taste to the thousands of flowers that grow on the island.


Want to live real adventures and connect with nature? Book your stay in the Azores, Europe's green sanctuary.

5. Faial

Azores - Portugal

We are familiar with Faial (in the Azores) as we visited the place some time ago. The ever changing landscapes are stunning, the inhabitants friendly.


Faial is the perfect place for a week of family digital detox. Bearing in mind that, under the terms of the new Regulation on Access to the Boiler, the visit to the interior of the Boiler is mandatory, between sunrise and sunset and always accompanied by a guide and is conditioned to a maximum daily load capacity of 40 visitors, being that the stay in this protected area should not exceed 3 hours, we suggest to change the photo of the interior by another that effectively illustrates the circular trail through the ridges.


Enjoy the Faial Botanical Garden and wild Caldeira, the Bay and view of the last volcanic eruption on the island. Start the day with a delicious breakfast (the food is local) and sleep in one of the most beautiful places in the island; we recommend the "Quinta das Bougainvillias"; it is the best place to start your digital detox cure on this beautiful island.
