This summer SATA Airlines wants to help travelers discover beautiful Terceira Island, in the Azores. And, a direct round trip flight from Oakland to Terceira is just $999, all taxes and fees included, for travel between August 7 and September 25, 2013. Must be booked by June 30, 2013.
On Terceira Island, the summer is celebrated not only on sandy beaches protected by cliffs, but in the green mountains and foothills. The main city, Angra do Heroísmo, is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and features a mix of the cosmopolitan and the traditional, with plenty of well-preserved streets and monuments. It is also the cultural heart of the Azores, with performing arts, museums, and a rich nightlife. Shopping here is diverse, with no shortage of bookshops, art galleries and antique shops.
Terceira’s coast is dotted with quaint fishing towns, beaches and lava rocks. The wide bay and beach at the pretty town of Praia da Vitória are well worth a visit, as is the lake at Caldeira de Guilherme Moniz, which is the biggest body of water in the Azores after to the ocean.
Away from the coast, Terceira is a wild and hilly landscape perfect for walking or hiking. Make sure you don’t miss a bull-running, which take place from spring to autumn. Visit Biscoitos, an established wine region, with its fantastic Wine Museum, and discover the green pastureland views in the interior and the coast filled with black lava.
