Ponta Delgada

— 4 nights
As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island. Known for its historical buildings, the city offers 17th- and 18th-century convents and churches, as well as cobbled pedestrian streets and hidden squares.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Mosteiros Beach and Praia de Santa Barbara. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes and Lagoa das Furnas. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ponta Delgada: Caldeiras Vulcânicas (in Furnas) and Piscinas Naturais (in Mosteiros). There's still lots to do: get outside with Lagoa do Congro, admire the sheer force of Salto do Cabrito, Head underground at Gruta do Carvao, and cast your line with a fishing tour.
