Nature & Geology
In addition to being a modern and active city, Ponta Delgada has a lot of nature to display. For instance at the botanical garden Antonio Borges, you can see a great variety of plants, flowers, and trees.
Under the vibrant city is located a quiet place of enormous geological interest: Gruta do Carvão. It is possible to visit this long lava tube with a guide for a unique underground experience.
For ocean lovers, the pool of Pesqueiros located right near the city center is the perfect place to relax. Sunbath on the warm ground and take a refreshing dip in the Atlantic Ocean without having to leave the city.
