Sao Miguel

Visit Sao Miguel


Sao Miguel in the Azores archipelago is Portugal's very own Eden; verdant mountainsides slope to green plains, ending in a stunning coastal fringe of white-sand beaches. We recommend you visit in the summer months when the plains are carpeted by a riot of seasonal blooms. No less impressive are the extensive plantations of banana and pineapple that cover the island.

The region is also home to industrial buildings, dedicated to processing the locally grown produce and a tour of the tea and coffee factories provides a fascinating insight into island life. Although home to the largest number of people in the Azores, Sao Miguel attracts far fewer tourists than the mainland, preserving its tranquil vibe.

Then there is Ponta Delgada, the capital city. A mix of old and new, its turn-of-the-century cobbled streets offer the best amenities on the island and most visitors choose to stay in the town's hotels, or moor up for the night at the city's modern marina. Alternatively head for Terra Nostra Park with its premiere golf courses and stunning beaches.
