The White Island

This small island is serene enough to live up to its name, which translates as Enchanting. Graceful white rocks line the coastline, and red-turreted windmills dot the landscape. Graciosa is also home to the famed Azorean dwarf donkeys — a species on the verge of extinction (there are allegedly only 20 left!) The deep waters around the island also make it one of the best from which to embark on a whale- or dolphin-watching expedition.
