Legends of Brugges walking tour. The free walking is definitely worth taking. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and provide insight into the town that you would not know otherwise. N.B. although free a tip is expected after the tour is finished

It will be, probably, the main attraction of São Miguel Island. The place is beautiful and it had an unusual natural beauty. Enjoy the various viewpoints for a more complete view of the lagoons. Unmissable.

We rented a car and drove there on our own. That way we were able to go at our own speed and stop and hike. It's an easy drive as long as you are comfortable driving on narrow roads!
