Sao Miguel Holidays

At 40 miles (65 km) long and 9 miles (14 km) at its widest, São Miguel is the largest island in the Azores. Located on the eastern side of the Azores archipelago, it is made up of 6 volcanic municipalities.

Stroll through Ponta Delgada, the island's unofficial capital with its narrow cobbled streets, period houses and range of restaurants and shops. Marvel at the beautiful Sete Cidades, an extinct volcano crater of 25 square miles (40 square km) with two emerald green and aquamarine lakes.
Head north and visit the agricultural town of Ribeira Grande, with its dramatic landscape, beautiful beaches and vast cliffs.
Witness miles of fertile lands and crop fields including pot potatoes, tobacco, sugar beet, passion fruit and the only tea plantation in Europe. Visit the glistening blue crater lake at Lagoa do Fogo, situated in a volcanic crater. It's the highest lake in the Azores. 

The relatively undiscovered north east coast offers spectacularly high cliffs, miles of forests and woodlands, flower covered fields and mountains that seemingly stretch out into the sea. While the secluded north-west cast is ideal for a romantic escape. Tour the spa town of Furnas, one of the largest thermal water sources in the world, and marvel at its awe-inspiring lake bordered by bright pink azalea. Home to a thirty acre botanical garden, it boasts fresh sweet scents from an abundance of flora and fauna. Travel south of Sao Miguel and discover the municipalities of Vila Franca do Campo and Lagoa - mountainous, agricultural areas with vast black cliffs that disappear into the ocean. Enjoy fresh pineapples, bananas and oranges that are cultivated here. 
Further out to sea, enjoy spotting one of over twenty species of whales that are resident in or migrate to the cool waters of the Atlantic.
