Azores Triathlon

The Azores have often been called “the Hawaii of Europe”, and it’s easy to see why. Like the 50th state of the US, the chain of nine idyllic Portuguese islands is separated from its mainland by a wide expanse of ocean – and the pyramid-shaped mountains, swathed in lush vegetation, are testament to a similar volcanic origin.

Lying some 850 miles west of Portugal, the archipelago is the westernmost outpost of Europe. There are three island groups: the eastern pairing of São Miguel and Santa Maria; a central group, taking in Terceira, Pico, Faial, São Jorge and Graciosa; and the western isles of Flores and Corvo.

Terceira, known as “the lilac island”, is one of the two gateways to the Azores and it’s the second most populous of the isles, with a population approaching 57,000.

Praia da Vitória, served by the international airport of Lajes, has fantastic conditions for triathlon and is one of the most modern towns in the Azores. Located in a large bay on the east coast, this pretty town boasts a long and attractive sandy beach, a smart marina, a nice pedestrian shopping zone and a very pleasant ambiance.
