Ponta Delgada — 6 nights

As the busy capital of São Miguel, Ponta Delgada represents the most visited place on the island.
Take a break from the city and head to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Salto do Cabrito. Visit Mosteiros Beach and Praia de Santa Barbara for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Pico do Ferro Viewpoint, &more) and Piscinas Naturais (in Mosteiros). Spend the 7th (Wed) exploring nature at Parque Natural da Ribeira dos Caldeiroes. The adventure continues: fulfill a lifelong dream with Azores Whale Watching TERRA AZUL, explore the activities along Lagoa do Congro, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and stroll through Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre.

Green Island
Known as The Green Island, Sao Miguel is the largest of the nine islands of Azores and is considered a natural paradise. These islands were discovered in the 15th century and, according to myth, are reputed to be part of the lost empire of Atlantis. Sao Miguel's most prominent feature is a set of twin lakes, one of which is blue and the other green. Visitors also enjoy the island's park, golf courses, beaches, mountains, marina, and ocean views. Stop for a look at the city's monuments and architecture, and experience the cobbled streets lined with a variety of restaurants, shops, bars, and cafes.
