São Miguel – the largest island of the Azores
São Miguel belongs to the eastern group of the Azores and is the largest island of the archipelago. Probably the most famous natural wonder of São Miguel is Lagoa das Sete Cidades: in a huge volcanic crater lie the twin lakes, from the viewpoint Visto do Rei one gleams in blue, the other in green.
As another unique feature in the Azores, the island offers geysers and hot thermal springs that can be enjoyed for a bath.
The island holds small sandy beaches, caves, impressive cliffs and forts. And in fact, S. Miguel is not inferior to its reputation, but enchants travelers with lakes and landscapes of great beauty, vast plains dotted with flowers, and at the same time you can experience the hustle and bustle of a big city there. With Ponta Delgada airport, the island is the perfect starting point for island hopping.
