Azores Location - Where on Earth are they???
The Azores location is quite remote. Which is why so many people ask me "where are the Azores located?". This page will help you to find the Azores Islands.
The Acores Islands are thousands of miles from any continent. They are closest to the coast of Portugal. But in the grand scheme of things they are just a tiny speck of volcanic rock in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Azores Archipelago is so far removed from the rest of the planet that it is one place where you can find peace and quiet while still having some of the pleasures and comforts of home. I think of them as a place to escape for some rest and relaxation. And sometimes for some adventure.
But back to the reason you are visiting this page - where on earth are the Azores Islands?
The best way to show where the Azores are located is on a map of the Atlantic Ocean: (Hint they are the tiny specks in the Atlantic, closer to Portugal than North America)
Please fee free to use the arrows and the plus and minus tools to move the map and zoom in or out.
You can see by the maps that they are tiny.
