Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, Caldeiras Vulcânicas, &more). Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, make a trip to Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

Plan my Ponta Delgada trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Lisbon to Ponta Delgada is an approximately 4-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Western European Standard Time (WET) to Azores Standard Time (AZOT) is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Lisbon in August, expect nights in Ponta Delgada to be about the same, around °C, while days are little chillier, around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to travel to Praia da Vitoria.
