Ponta Delgada is the historic capital of S. Miguel Island and was founded in the 15th Century. It offers romantic gardens, cobblestone streets and a seaside shopping and cultural area.

And, for water activities, try canoeing at the volcanic lakes, swimming in tidal pools, or enjoy the ocean with surfing, deep sea fishing, diving or whale watching.
