“This is truly a unique dining experience! If you are planning a visit to Fogo Island this is a must. Be sure to reserve well in advance. Their menu offers a diverse selection of fish and seafood to foraged mushrooms and berries from the bogs. Five Stars!!!”

Boat or Ferry
“Considered one of the ‘Four Corners of the World’! A ferry ride takes you to a wonderful island with gorgeous hikes including ‘Brimstone Head’ (short but beautiful), ‘Lion’s Den’ (longer trail with views toward long lost family dominated fishing villages), and the oceanfront ‘Great Auk Trail’ with its giant sculptured Auk at the end of the trail! Fogo Island also has picturesque villages like Tilting, Joe Batt’s Arm, and of course Fogo. The Fogo Island Inn and it’s artist studios are modern, architectural icons. ”
