Earthquakes in São Jorge

Dear guests,

We have received some requests for information about what is going on in S. Jorge and if it will affect your holiday in the these islands of the triangle.

The earthquakes that have been felt on that island have not been felt on Faial. The information we have is not certain, but for now our island is safe.

The same cannot be said about our neighbors in Jorge, because at the moment tourist visits to that island are unfortunately not recommended.

The official information we received from the Regional Directorate of Tourism, about the natural earthquake-volcanic crisis, informs us of the following:

” The present situation on São Jorge Island is, according to the Azorean Seismic-volcanic Surveillance and Information Centre (CIVISA), of volcanic alert (Level V4) and the Regional Emergency Plan Civil Protection has been activated in order to give response, in case of need, to eventual occurrences that might result from this phenomenon on São Jorge Island.

 Therefore, at the moment, non-essential visits to São Jorge island are not advisable, according to the Informative Note no. 6/2022, of 22nd March, issued by the Regional Service of Civil Protection.
