If you are pretty fit and love to walk you can walk to Pinhal da Paz from Ponta Delgada. It's about one hour each way through little towns and pastures. The scenery is incredible and you will have a better experience

Quite attractive but you need a car to get there. You can get a bus to the nearby town of Faja Cima and then you have to walk a couple of miles to the park entrance along a main road. We were the only ones there when we visited. Probably because the weather this April was poor.

Nice place to visit, bring friends and family and to spend time on pic-nic style. Wide areas with lots of green spaces. It is a big far from local access. You will need car to take you there.

Nice park. Go spend a few hours or half a day. Go to the view point at the far eastern corner of the park - it's well worth the climp up!
