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.
Step out of the city life by going to Caldeira das Sete Cidades and Poca Da Dona Beija. Get out of town with these interesting Ponta Delgada side-trips: Furnas (Terra Nostra Gardens & Pico do Ferro Viewpoint). Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, experience rural life at Gorreana Tea Plantation, stroll through Praia de Santa Barbara, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
