Visitors commonly use Santa Cruz das Flores as a launch pad for further explorations. Azores has been blessed with an abundance of fascinating cities, attractions and landscapes.
Go to Azores' craft workshops. These are great places to hang out, especially on inclement days.
Enjoy an experience you won't easily forget while you are in the area. Be a daredevil for a day and go paragliding! Relax upon the region's waters with a spot of canoeing or sailing.
Trying local food is an excellent way to get to know about an area. So be sure to visit some of the region's restaurants. Two of the region's key cooking ingredients are limpets and barnacles. Local favorite menu items include cozido das furnas (meat stew) and inhames fritos (fried yams), but naturally there are many other mouthwatering meal options on the menu. And no meal is over until you have had queijadas da graciosa (graciosa custards), a common dessert in these parts.
One of the best compliments you can pay to locals you'll encounter in your travels is to go to the trouble of some common phrases. An example of a hand local sentence is "Você é bem-vindo" (You're welcome). "Queres dançar comigo? " translates to "Would you like to dance with me?"
Good things must come to an end, but be rest assured, when you're ready to leave Azores, you'll be leaving with many memories, photos and keepsakes to remember your time here.
