Pico Airport is an airport situated approximately 15 minutes from Madalena on the Portuguese Pico Island. Pico Island is home to the volcano Ponta do Pico which is the highest mountain in Portugal. It is also known as the Black Island because of its black volcanic earth which makes its historical vineyards UNESCO listed. Hiring a car from Pico Airport means that you can make your way around the island at your own leisure. You can climb the mountain or head to the coast for a spot of whale watching, you can even go swimming in a tidal, lava pool.
Rent a car from Pico Airport and head 7.5km to Rua do Castelo where you will find a building which was previously a whale processing factory as this was the island main industry. Now the building has been converted into the Centre of the Arts and Marine Sciences. The centre displays equipment and information on the whaling factory but it now also focuses on the biology and ecology of whales, dolphins and porpoises. Cultural and artistic events are also held here. Take part in a guided tour and make the most of your experience before perusing the shop.
