From the map below you can see that the location of The Bungalow is very close to Horta. It is situated on the hills of the parish of Flamengos, named after the first settlers who came to Faial in 1468. The beach of Praia do Almoxarife is 5 mins away as is the city of Horta, with its inner-city, sandy beach of Porto Pim.
The view from The Bungalow is incredible! South is the valley of Flamengos with the Atlantic Ocean just behind it. To the West is the Caldeira and to the East you can see Horta, the Faial-Pico Channel and Mt Pico behind it.
As the main city, Horta of course has many historical buildings, shops, bars and restaurants and the ferries to the other islands. Also the many activities like whale watching, swimming with dolphins, sailing and sport fishing can be booked in the marina of Horta.
As you can see The Bungalow is located very centrally and you can easily explore the entire island from it. It is a short drive up to the Caldeira, the crater of the volcano that formed Faial, which has an 8km circular hike suitable for all.
Your host Trixie can tell you everything about the island and even offers the Explore Azores services where she will take care of everything leaving you to enjoy your holiday to the fullest!
