Travel Tips for Ilha de São Miguel

Try the local beer.

by cachaseiro

On the Azores they have a local beer brand and it is a very fine pilsner beer so there is no reason to drink bad international franchise brands while you are on Sao Miguel.
The name of the brand is "especial" and it is mostly served as draught beer at the local cafes and it´s a slightly sweet pilsner beer that goes down very well with the warmish climate of the Azores.

Pilgrims

by Zirpsis

These men are walking from village to village and praying for you. Anyone can leave them a prayer request and then they will stop at the first church that comes and pray for you as many times as there are men in the group. The pilgrimers get a paid week off from work to do this. The pilgrimage takes a week so there are new pilgrimers every week.

Lapas - Delicacy from the Azores

by mircaskirca

Lapas (limpets) are very small (about the size of half a mussel shell) shellfish that grow in the waters around the islands and can be found in many restaurants. Usually they are served grilled in olive oil - lapas grelhadas. Squeeze some fresh lemon over it and you'll be in heaven :) Other recipes include arroz de lapas (rice with limpets), lapas de molho Afonso (limpets with a tasty spicy sauce) and empadas de lapas (buns with limpets).

Lapas are one of the things that you will only get here on the islands so well worth trying. The meat is chewy and has a real sea flavour if not over seasoned.

Golf on the green island

by Zirpsis

There are two golf courses on the S.Miguel island: the 18-hole Furnas golf course up on the hills and the 27-hole Batalha golf course near Ponta Delgada. You can read the details in the link I've provided, so I'm not repeating it here.

Capelas little harbour

by faq

At Capelas village, try to follow the signs (almost invisible) that says "porto" or ask for "porto". Mainly, you have to go to the center of the village and, after makind the half-round of the main roundabout, some 100 meters after exiting the roundabout, turn right, following the little "porto" sign.
You will got a very narrow streed that goes following down the cliff down to the little harbour. Only little cars can pass that street, so, if you have a large car, it's better leave the car upper in the street and walk down the little harbour.
In that harbour you will get some peace and quiet ambiance near the seaside. In August, surelly, you will see lots of kids divin from hte rock into the sea.
