"Excellent Travel Guide" Ilha de São Miguel Favorite Tip by AnitaJRT

Ilha de São Miguel General: 14 reviews and 33 photos

  Terre Nostra Gardenpath
by AnitaJRT

Favorite thing: I highly recommend purchasing the Bradt Travel Guide before setting out to the Azores. It is packed with information on walks and driving tours, what to see, what to avoid.

Most of the information is very good but the directions aren't always correct.

Fondest memory: Being a gardener, our favorite spot on Sao Miguel was definitely the gardens at Terre Nostra, but we realize this isn't everyone's cup of tea.

Be sure to take your bathing suit if you are planning a visit here -- regardless of the temperatures or the weather, since the hot springs are perfect. They have showers and changing areas available for your use.

A lovely way to spend a day.
