Ponta Delgada ©
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 list of things to see and do now includes Furnas, Pedra Queimada - Lajinha - Degredo, Praia Calhau D'Areia, and other attractions. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mosteiros Beach and Lagoas Empadadas. Visiting Lagoa do Canario and Lagoa Azul, Sao Miguel Acores will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Piscinas Naturais (in Mosteiros), Nordeste (Viewpoint of Ponta da Madrugada & Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego) and Furnas (OMIC - Observatorio Microbiano dos Acores & Pico do Ferro Viewpoint). Next up on the itinerary: hike along Salto do Prego, take some stellar pictures from Viewpoint of Black Stones, and hunt for treasures at Mercado da Graca.
