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.
Nossa Senhora da Paz and Sinagoga Sahar Hassamain are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Praia de Santa Barbara and Piscinas Naturais. Get out of town with these interesting Ponta Delgada side-trips: Mosteiros Beach (in Mosteiros), Frade Natural Pools (in Ribeira Grande) and Furnas (Jose do Canto Forest Garden, Poca Da Dona Beija, &more). Spend the 15th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: head outdoors with Lagoa do Congro, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Sao Jose, and identify plant and animal life at Pinhal da Paz.

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Ponta Delgada trip builder website.

Drive from Algarvia to Ponta Delgada in an hour. In August, daily temperatures in Ponta Delgada can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 21°C. On the 20th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
