Top Attractions of Horta
Horta offers travelers some of the most amazing experiences. You can go whale and dolphin watching from the island of Faial, city of Horta. If you are of the adventurous kind you can also go deep sea diving and watch the whales underwater. Travelers to Horta can enjoy a long hike up to Caldeira from where you get a panoramic view of the sea and the island. A trip to the Monte da Guia is best enjoyed by boat, as sea creatures can be viewed through the glass bottomed boats. Rent a car from Sixt and visit Parque Florestal do Capelo. It is a nice place to visit; there are picnic tables and free fire wood to light your own barbecue at this park in Horta. A short distance away is the Ceplinhos volcano which is a must visit. Yachts can also be chartered for a day out in the sea. The Marina of Horta is perhaps the most lively place on the island; the best attraction here are the paintings.
