The adventure continues: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja do Santo Cristo, take a tour by water with Azores Whale Watching TERRA AZUL, and explore the activities along Piscinas Naturais.

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.
