Ponta Delgada — 6 nights

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 hidden gems such as Lagoa das Furnas and Fishing Charters & Tours. Get in touch with nature at Salto do Cabrito and Piscinas Naturais. Change things up with a short trip to Caldeiras Vulcânicas in Furnas (about 46 minutes away). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Ponta da Ferraria Ferraria, pause for some serene contemplation at Igreja de Sao Jose, relax in the rural setting at Ananas Santo Antonio, and see Off-Road Tours.
