  • During our car journey across the Azores island of Faial we found a short ' volcano route ' that goes along a small road on the coast. You will see the Morro de Castelo Branco. This is a hard high rock that is close to the coast. It is at the heart of a very old volcano. You can walk to it. There are plenty of signs about what to see during a walk. If you are on the way from Horta to the west and you see the dirt road, then do. For a bird spotter and lover of special vegetation this is very beautiful. For us this was a short stop and we found it in conjunction with the route quite interesting. Dorry & Ton

  • This headland is a white rock formation of almost ten thousand years and has become a protected area as the birds go there to nest at a certain time of the year and in fact it is recommended for all birdwatchers. Beneath this headland there is also a beautiful bay. It is a very relaxing place and with a crazy view. At the beginning of the path there is a parking lot and then with a flat path you get to the headland.
