Coasteering in São Miguel Island - half day


Have a fresh start for your holidays in the Azores and jump into the Atlantic Ocean! The coastline of the volcanic island of São Miguel hides areas that few people will ever get to know. Coasteering along the wild coastline will give you another perspective on the island. During this adventure, you will scramble, traverse the tide line, swim in a volcanic area surrounded by fauna and flora, climb and cliff jump into the water.

We will pick you up at 8:15 in Ponta Delgada and go on an adventure. The tour takes place in Água de Pau, a beautiful coastal town in the municipality of Lagoa.

Duration of the activity: To the 3 hours of preparation and coasteering itself, you should add approximately 20 minutes for the included pick-up and transportation from Ponta Delgada and 20 minutes for the way back and drop-off. 

Please note that this activity is available for children above 5 years old for safety reasons, and the tour will depend on water levels and weather conditions.
