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. In the build up to your vacation in Sao Miguel, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Portugal trip itinerary builder site.

Where to stay in Sao Miguel

For a stay in a luxury hotel near the beach with lots of amenities, book a room in Ponta Delgada, the island of Sao Miguel's capital and main city. Booking a hotel in the historical city center gives you good access by foot to both the nearby ocean and tourist sights in town, including renowned gardens, churches, and even a 16th-century fortress. This spot also provides a great base for exploring the rest of the island's verdant natural landscape in the interior or the other smaller towns along the coast. To score lower prices or to escape the bustle of Ponta Delgada, try a family-run bed and breakfast or villa near the city of Lagoa or up on the northern coastline between Riberia Grande and Mosteiros.
