Lajes Des Flores is a Portuguese municipality in the western part of the Azores, laying on the north east coast of Portugal. It typically provides ferry routes to other coastal towns belonging to Portugal, with the shortest crossing lasting two hours and the longest lasting fifty hours.
With a population of just over one thousand people, the island doesn’t lend itself to accommodating mass amounts of tourism. There are a few places to stay for a few nights; many budget hotels offer affordable prices for simplistic rooms, and for those willing to spend a bit more money there are apartments available for rent. Although the accommodation is plentiful, Lajes Des Flores has a lack of many amenities or major sights on offer – the primary form of entertainment is the natural landscapes that provide both stunning views and fulfilling walking trails.
The island is so small that the vast majority of the places to stay will be within walking distance of the port. The weather is usually warm and pleasant, so even a stroll in the late evening can be enjoyable, especially in the summer. If walking isn’t a viable option, there are also taxis available to transport passengers to and from the port.
