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.
