Portugal is not only an amazing golf destination, it offers so much more...


The Portuguese first reached the Azores in 1427. Their caravels put in at the islands of Santa Maria and São Miguel, and from those beginnings, all nine islands were gradually settled.

During the 16th and 17th centuries, the islands' geographical position was pivotal for Atlantic navigation between Europe, the Orient and the Americas. During that period, the sea around the Azores was the scene of important sea-battles, and pirates often attacked the islands themselves.

Over the following centuries, the archipelago developed with the introduction of new crops, animal husbandry techniques and larger fisheries.

The Azores has always been part of Portugal and today has Autonomous Region status with its own Assembly and Government.

Paradise for nature-lovers

With their blue lakes bordered by flowers, dazzling views of the sea from high in the hills, and lush green landscapes of ancient volcanic craters, the nine islands of the Azores offer you to rediscover the peace of an unspoiled natural environment.

São Miguel, the largest islands, is renowned for its flowers and green landscapes, its large scenic lakes and the vibrant city of Ponta Delgada.
