Travel Tips for Ilha de São Miguel

Sao Miguel is cattle country.

by cachaseiro

When you travel around Sao Miguel you will notice that there are a lot of cows on the island.
There is a large milk and cheese production on the island and since the cows on Sao Miguel roam on the open fields and not in closed sheds so they are a very visible part of life on Sao Miguel.
The cows are often milked right on the field and i think the cows is one of the things that makes Sao Miguel such a nice place to travel, cause it shows farming when in it´s most sympaphetic way.

Fishing is a big industry here.

by cachaseiro

Fishing still plays a big role when it comes to the local economy and employment on Sao Miguel.
It´s very much tuna fishing that makes the big money at the moment in the Sao Miguel fishing industry at the moment, but there are many other fish to be caught too.
The people who work in the fishing industry in Sao Miguel are not the richest, but they are a big part of the local scene and culture and the fishing harbours are a big part of the local vibe on Sao Miguel.

Cozido das Furnas

by mircaskirca

Make sure you try Cozido das Furnas, one of the most popular dishes of the Azores. This unique dish is cooked in the 'natural kitchen', in the heat of the volcanic soil by the Furnas Lake. Holes are made about 1m deep in the hot earth into which they place a pot filled with different meats (or cod fish) and vegetables (mostly cabbage, carrots, pepper, potatoes and yam). It is all left to slowly cook for around seven hours and thus all the flavours and delicious juices are preserved.

This is not only a tourist attraction but a popular Sunday lunch tradition to come here with the family, cook the cozido and enjoy this tasty dish in these magnificent surroundings. Feeling of excitement is present when the pot is removed from the ground. Various restaurants by the lake also serve this must have meal.

Spend a day hiking

by Zirpsis

Hiking at the steep hills near the village Faial da Terra was a great experience for me. It was about 7 km route and there was a stream with nice water falls. We also saw the abandoned village of Sanguinho up in the hills. The route comes back to the starting point and it's fairly easy for anyone who's done some excercising. Not for couch potatoes though!

Guided tours can be booked from Colegio 27, Rua Carvalho Araujo 27, Ponta Delgada. Info: +351 296 288 930. E-mail: Hiking shoes, picnic lunch and something warm to drink (at least I felt it was quite chilly at the water fall).


by cachaseiro

Achada is located on the north eastern part of Sao Miguel and has a really pretty waterfall aswell as an old watermill that still functions.
It´s located along the road you will most likely take if you are going back to the center of the island after visiting Nordeste and it makes a perfect stop along the way.
It´s really a pretty little place and you have a little cafe next to the watermill too where you can have a coffee and use the bathroom if you need.
