Whale'come ao Pico, Lajes do Pico
We spend all but two nights in the characterful Whale'come ao Pico, which is located in the centre of the village of Lajes do Pico just beside Espaço Talassa's whale watching base and the whaler's museum, with a great view of Portugal's highest mountain and the Atlantic Ocean.
Simple fresh local food is served in the restaurant by the friendly team, and is well reviewed, with vegetarian options also available. Stylish rooms come with a private bathroom and TV. Wi-Fi is available in the lobby and restaurant.
This couldn’t be a better base for whale watching!
