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.
Take a break from the city and head to Shark Diving and Lagoa Azul, Sao Miguel Acores. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Jose do Canto Forest Garden. Take a break from Ponta Delgada with a short trip to Salto do Prego in Povoacao, about 1h 25 min away. The adventure continues: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, explore the activities along Lagoa do Fogo, look for gifts at Fábrica De Licores - Eduardo Ferreira & Filhos, Lda., and make a trip to Pico Carvao.
