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.
Visiting Lagoa do Fogo and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Centro de Monitorizacao e Investigacao das Furnas and Nossa Senhora da Paz. Venture out of the city with trips to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra & Poca Da Dona Beija). The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Santa Barbara, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and take some stellar pictures from Plantacoes de Cha Gorreana.
