Embark on a picturesque road trip to explore the Azores Islands. Start from Ponta Delgada and enjoy the breathtaking coastal views, discover volcanic craters as you venture inland and pass through quaint villages. This trip is ideal for families with children as the trails are not too steep, and the distances are not too tiring.

Day 1: Miradouro da Grota do Inferno
  • Distance
    66 km
  • Spots

We started the trip at Miradouro da Ponta do Escalvado (where we later arrived 2 more times on other days, forgetting that we had already been there 😂). We walked along the shore of Lagoa Verde in the direction of Sitio Secreto. It was windy and cold, with a light drizzle. The trail followed the forest, providing good shelter from the wind.

Lunch: Komaki Burger Truck

Next, we climbed to the panorama of Miradouro da Grota do Inferno. It was incredibly beautiful, with the sun just emerging from behind the clouds, casting a lovely light on the lakes. As we started to feel the cold, we headed to the pineapple farm in Ponta Delgada: Plantação de Ananás dos Açores.
