The Miradouro (viewpoint) rest area itself is very nice, with all sorts of interesting plants growing. As with most Miradouros, you also get a breathtaking view from this one, of the Eastern coast of São Miguel. Most definitely worth a stop.

Our first stop on the island and definitely worth the drive out. Amazing views set in beautiful gardens. Lots of space for picnics and even bbqs too. Great views over the cliffs, free parking as well.

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.

Not in this area. There are places to swim on the island however places that you would not consider beaches.
