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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Praia Calhau D'Areia (in Ribeira Grande), Miradouro da Ponta do Sossego (in Nordeste) and Furnas (Poca Da Dona Beija, Jose do Canto Forest Garden, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, identify plant and animal life at Caldeira Velha Environmental Interpretation Centre, contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

To see ratings, photos, maps, and tourist information, use the Ponta Delgada day trip planner.
