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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ponta Delgada: Furnas (Parque Terra Nostra, Caldeiras da Lagoa das Furnas, & more). Fill the 24th (Fri) with unforgettable perspectives with a canyoning and rapelling tour. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Lagoa do Fogo, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and look for all kinds of wild species at Environmental Interpretation Centre of Caldeira Velha.

To see ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Ponta Delgada trip maker site .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are João Paulo II Airport and Lajes Airport. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in May, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
