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 Ponta Delgada's surroundings by going to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Poca Da Dona Beija, &more), Frade Viewpoint (in Maia) and Azorean Active Blueberry (in Achada). Spend the 15th (Tue) observing fascinating marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour. Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, don't miss a visit to Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, experience rural life at Ananas Santo Antonio, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo.
