Faial is one of the Central Group of the islands. It is only 14 km across at its widest point and is 4 miles across the sea from Pico. The name means "beech tree" but the island's main trees are now the strawberry trees. Faial is sometmes called "The Blue Island" for the beautiful hydrangeas that grow there.
