São Miguel - Rough beautiful island in the Atlantic ocean

Holidays on São Miguel

São Miguel in the Azores is a vibrant garden in the middle of the Atlantic. With so many different landscapes and things to do.

São Miguel is all about nature with their volcanoes, crater lakes, waterfalls and hot springs. These paradise islands are one of the most impressive and beautiful places you`ll ever visit. Situated in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Azores are still unspoiled, not (yet) packed with tourists and probably the greenest islands you’ll ever encounter in your life.

They are a true paradise on earth and they’re not called the Hawaii of Europe for nothing. Oh, and a fun fact; there are more cows than humans.

The main island of the Azores, São Miguel still maintains a unique charm where life is polite and unhurried. It’s a great island for a first visit with easy flight connections, a wealth of things to see and activities to do, and some of the Azores’ most spectacular volcanic scenery.

From quiet fishing villages to remote crater lakes to boiling pools, this island has it all.

São Miguel is also the island in the Azores with the most to offer. Its cosmopolitan town of Ponta Delgada offers the visitor a blend of contemporary life with historic flavor. São Miguel monuments, turn of the century architecture, parks, and cobble stone streets are interlaced with a modern marina, nice restaurants, shopping, bars, night-clubs, and ocean-front cafes.

São Miguel’s diverse scenery is a pleasant awakening to visitors: it features beautiful lakes, sandy beaches, rolling hills, high mountains, green plains, and of course the blue ocean.

São Miguel is also known for is award winning Terra Nostra Park, wonderful golf courses, lakes, beaches, land, century-old architecture, majestic scenery, and most of all, its people.

Activities on São Miguel include whale watching, swimming with dolphins, walking and trekking, diving, fishing, jeep safaris, bird watching, sailing, snorkeling, swimming, golf and many other outdoor and indoor activities. The weather is best between June and October with the hottest months being July, August, and September. November to January is also pleasant but temperatures dip slightly. February through May tend to be on the rainy side of things.

The weather on São Miguel can be somewhat unpredictable and that it can change in an instant. The islands are situated in a subtropical climate and clouds and rain are a frequent occurrence (especially in the fall and winter months).

São Miguel isn’t called the “Green Island” for no reason. It takes a good amount of rain to keep the landscape so lush and flourishing! Plus, without the rain, you wouldn’t have rainbows…

If you’ve even been considering a trip to São Miguel, I’d highly recommend taking it. Add it as a layover on your next trans-Atlantic flight, or treat it as a holiday destination in its own right. I promise you’ll love it.
