Ponta Delgada

Ponta Delgada ©
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Caldeiras Vulcânicas, &more). There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Caldeira das Sete Cidades, contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, take some stellar pictures from Serra da Barrosa Viewpoint, and get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.
