Firstly the road from Nordeste is not as good as you would like it to be. It’s fine, wide, but broken and bumpy in places. But stick with it! It looks like some road works and improvements are taking place currently on the road. This...More

As its name suggests, this is a site of total peace of mind. The site is on the East coast of Sao Miguel, high above the sea. It has a beautiful flower garden and a big picnic area, with shaded sitting places and all the...More

We took a full day tour of the Nordeste part of the island and had beautiful weather. I recommend a full day tour in each direction from Ponta Delgada...you won't be disappointed. Terrific views.

Beautifull garden with stunning views of the shore, picnic areas and lots of cats. There is a little cafe at the parking lot where you can buy cafe, icecream, water etc.

This is the most beautiful Miradouro on this part of the island. It consists of a very well maintained garden, multiple picknick areas, toilets, and most importantly, a stunning view on the Ponta do Sossego. At present, the road from Nordeste to this point is...More

Nice small gardens surrounding the viewpoint. Dramatic drops to the ocean. Several places set up to get the most out of your photos.

Amazing views and lovely garden full of nice cats and kittens too. The views are like something out of a film including a lost film like Jurassic park or something. Also visit the other viewpoint just down the road about a mile or so.
