Your Destinations

All the nine islands of the Azores Archipelago are of volcanic origin and are located in the Atlantic Ocean, between two continents.  They are an autonomous region of the Portuguese state. The islands of the archipelago are divided in three geographical groups: the Eastern Group, comprising of Santa Maria and São Miguel, the Central Group, including Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial, and the Western Group, composed by Corvo and Flores. São Miguel is the biggest island of the archipelago, with more than half of the Azorean populaiton living there, and its capital Ponta Delgada being the home of the regional government.
The Green Island
The landscape of São Miguel is marked by two mountain areas separated by a low altitude platform. Nicknamed the Green Island, its landscape is made up of extensive fields and dense forests that are one of the most iconic images of São Miguel. The original flora still survives in small areas, with native and endemic species such as the Azores heather, faya, laurel and holly serving as a shelter for a very special bird, the Azores Bullfinch, and making up a palette of different shades of green spread out along the horizon.

Volcanic Landscapes
São Miguel is a land of lakes nested in volcanic craters that are many kilometres wide. The most iconic one lies in Sete Cidades. This is a place filled with legends and myths, and it deserves to be seen from the Vista do Rei Lookout; from there you can see two twin lakes, the Green and the Blue, paired together by a bridge. But the number of lakes does not stop here, since others can be found both in the Serra Devassa and in the central part of the island, including the Canário, Santiago, Éguas and Congro Lakes... There will always certainly be another lake waiting to be discovered.

Coastline
High cliffs covered with green forests, black basalt headlands that penetrate the sea, promontories and sweet inlets, challenging fajãs [flat, low-lying strips of land on the coast], and numerous beaches with grey volcanic sand are just some of the features of São Miguel’s coastline that deserve to be seen.
