Discover the volcanic scenery of the northeast of Sao Miguel, visiting the true geographical treasures of Povoação and Lagoa de São Brás.
Povoação and Lagoa de São Brás Day Trip
We'll meet in Ponta Delgada and then pass along San Miguel's southern coastline. Here we'll find charming coastal towns, such as Vila Franca do Campo, with its green and copper islet sitting opposite the town. Do you know what caused this tiny natural formation?
Continuing on our journey, we'll reach another captivating coastal town, Povoação. Before replenishing our energy with a traditional lunch in a local restaurant, we'll have a wander around its picturesque streets.
After lunch we'll continue our route to Nordeste. This town, meaning northeast in Portuguese, is, as its name implies, located in the most northeastern point of San Miguel. Thanks to its strategic location, the lighthouse of Arnel can be found here, which we can see from one of the viewpoints in a nearby village.
We'll get back on the road again and head towards the famous Lagoa de São Brás lagoon. Surrounded by virgin greenery with no man-made buildings (which the local authorities have prohibited in this area); this is one of the spectacular natural spaces inland Sao Miguel. While we enjoy the surroundings, we'll also learn about the evolution of its formation throughout history.
The town of Porto Formoso can be found very close to the lagoon, and we'll take a break there to admire the incredible views before finally heading back to Ponta Delgada.
