Sporting Holidays - Terceira Island - Azores

The green grass of an 18 hole golf course spread over the gentle hills next to Algar do Carvao. Angra do Heroísmo and Praia da Vitória offer conditions for the practice of sailing, windsurfing and water skiing. Grottoes set in the bowels of the Earth stimulate the curiosity of speleologists. Green fields invite visitors to take restful walks through pastures and flowers, while those who are more keen on sports will find a climb up the Serra de Santa Bárbara and Pico Alto to be a way to broaden their horizons and be thrilled by a landscape made up of numberless hues of green, framed by the blue of the sea and sky. Trying to catch combative fish from rocks or from a boat rocked by the waves. Walking over hills and dales in pursuit of elusive rabbits. Pleasures that Terceira offers for lively, sporting holidays.

The sea and fishing
Set in the middle of a sea that is rich in fish, Terceira offers the rock fisherman a chance to catch the conger eel, Jack Grevalle, mackerel, snapper bream, moray eel and broadbill sword fish, The best fishing grounds are situated in the areas of Angra de Heroismo, Sliveira, São Maleus, Pesqueiro, Biscoitos, Praia da Vitória, Porto Martins, Porto Novo and Porto Judeu.

Hunting
Rabbits abound all over the island and hunting them is allowed throughout the year. The Pico Alto region is one of the most attractive for hunters.

Discovering Nature
Encountering different views at every step. Appreciating the discreet charms of a path winding through pastures, the liquid water-colour formed by the sea as seen from the top of a cliff or white houses surrounded by flowers. Attractions of walks that lead to the discovery of a Terceira that is not included in tourist guide-books.
