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.
