SÃO JORGE ISLAND

Your dream is so close.

SÃO JORGE ISLANDWe are waiting for you inParadise

São Jorge Island is an island located in the Azores Central Group, separated from Pico Island by a 15 km narrow strait - the São Jorge Channel. The island population rounds 9171 inhabitants.

This island is crossed by a mountain range that reaches a maximum altitude of 1 053 meters in Pico da Esperança. The coast is generally rocky with high and steep cliffs.

The great particularity of this island are the Fajãs, almost all inhabited, but with very difficult access. On the north coast, there are Fajã do Ouvidor, Fajã da Caldeira de Cima, Fajã da Ribeira da Areia, Fajã dos Cubres and Fajã da Caldeira de Santo Cristo. On the south coast, the most important are Fajã dos Vimes and Fajã de São João.

The climate, as in the other central islands, is moderate with average annual temperatures ranging between 12 °C and 25 °C.

This island has a very elongated and very narrow profile that makes it unique in the Azores archipelago since no other island has a similar characteristic. It is an island whose mountains are very high on the north-facing slopes, mainly due to the strong and constant abrasion of the sea.

The southern coast has a much less accentuated slope, descending almost smoothly to the sea. On this much lower coast, fajãs rarely appear.
