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.
Oficina - Museu and Observatorio Microbiano dos Acores - Omic will appeal to museum buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pinhal da Paz and Natural Pool. Explore Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Mosteiros Beach (in Mosteiros), Jose do Canto Forest Garden (in Furnas) and Farol Ponta do Arnel (in Nordeste). There's much more to do: get outside with Lagoa do Congro, stroll through Rocha da Relva, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Santa Barbara, and take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades.
