Exploring the island

Ponta Delgada, the capital of the island, is strategically placed so that it can function as a place to stay, while touring the island, in two alternative circuits that allow you to travel along the entire coast, with incursions into the interior to explore the places of greatest interest.
That was the solution on my first visit, while on the second I settled on a good beach 15 minutes away, and with the same facilities.

To see São Miguel – Western coast

It’s easy to travel the entire west coast of the island in just one day, departing from Ponta Delgada, and with frequent stops at one of the many viewpoints and points of interest. From south to north, here are some of the most interesting places to visit. or complaints.

To seeEastern coast of São Miguel

Going around the eastern tip of São Miguel island takes a little longer than the opposite side, but it allows you to reach some spots of rare beauty. Reaching Povoação is an arduous challenge, as the road moves away from the coast on both sides, and is subject to the constraints of the mountain. Some interesting points, travelling north from Ponta Delgada and eastbound:
