3 nights to spare - Madeira or Sao Miguel?


As a follow up to my earlier post, I've narrowed down to 3 nights in Lisbon and 4 nights in Lagos, Algarve.

For a honeymoon, which island would be more romantic and also offer some good sightseeing and light activities? Trip would be toward middle of July.

Suggestions appreciated. Thx a bunch.

Personally I would go for some rural house in S. Miguel, not very far away from Ponta Delgada from where you can organize some activities such as whale whatching. The island is very beatiful, unspoiled and romantic. Madeira is very different, also beautiful: Choose it if you prefer a lot of hotel options, good beaches and a somewhat warmer weather.
