About the Destination:
São Miguel is a great year-round destination, but when summertime comes, the island is especially exciting and beautiful. With its temperate maritime climate, the temperature in the summer hovers around 26 degrees Celsius, making it a very pleasant summer destination indeed. Soak up the sun at the many black sand beaches around the island, and take a dip in the temperate clean waters. Experience relaxing in natural lava swimming pools, literally swim in a hot spring in the ocean, and take a refreshing dip in one of the islands' many waterfalls. Whether you´re traveling solo or with your loved one or entire family, you will be surprised and very pleased by what the island has to offer.
Fans of adventure sports will also love the opportunity to go on a whale watching and swim with the dolphins excursion off the coast of the island, paddle out for a kayaking adventure, or go stand up paddle-boarding in the beautiful lakes. Also exciting options to add to your itinerary? Surfing or canyoning down the gorgeous waterfalls around the island, taking a short boat-ride to Ilhéu de Vila Franca, a truly idyllic natural reserve, and going snorkeling in its crystal clear waters.
You can also marvel at the island's volcanic activity, visit its quaint villages, and enjoy the many spectacular panoramic views of the island. Want more ideas? Indulge in a delicious meal at a seaside restaurant, where you will indulge in the amazing taste of the local seafood with a glass of local wine. If this isn’t tantalizing enough, think about seeing Earth breathing through fumaroles and mud pots, and then enjoying a relaxing evening soak in a natural hot spring while gazing at the stars. For night owls, you will especially enjoy the nightlife of Ponta Delgada, with its lively outdoor bars and cafes.
