Ponta Delgada is a Portuguese settlement island created by volcanic eruptions and is set in the Atlantic Ocean off of the north coast of Africa. This island is exceptionally beautiful with a mountainous terrain and a spectacular body of fresh blue water. It is an island whose economic means generally derive from tourism. There are many adventures to be had whilst visiting this stunning island.
Ponta Delgada is the main city on the San Miguel Island and is also the autonomous area of the country of Portugal. It is a tranquil city with less than 50,000 inhabitants, making it a perfect destination for travellers who do not want to be in an overcrowded city area. For a taste of local culture, many people enjoy visiting the suburb of Fajã de Cima because it holds multiple festivities on the island all year round. A popular spot is the São Roque because a new marina and sidewalk, which holds various souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants, has recently been built.
