Sao Jorge is a long narrow island with steep cliffs full of vegetation. Its maximum width is less than 7 km and Sao Jorge is also known as "The Brown Island”, due to the dark colors of its rocky formations and ridges. Sao Jorge is mainly popular with mountaineers and it's also known as one of the best places in Europe surfing. Divers can find a little less than a dozen divespots here which are nice, although they won't be the typical highlights of some of the other islands.

The 50+ km long volcanic ridge stretching from northwest to southeast provides a variety of dives, with vertiginous walls, rock formations, caves and pelagic marine life that is attracted by the strong current that the island receives.
