Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Ponta Delgada Airport! Then take a drive around São Miguel Island and check out some landmarks and attractions. Go to the Fumas hot springs and visit the Gorreana Tea Factory. Make sure you take the time to explore Lagoa de Fogo—the volcanic landscapes and crater lakes have an otherworldly quality.

The Azores is famous for its beaches, and rightfully so. You won’t have any trouble finding a special spot to enjoy. Drive to the beautifully green Sete Cidades area. Visit the local markets to buy fresh fruits and Mercado do Peixe for fresh seafood. As you’re driving around, you’ll come across a lot of smaller restaurants and taverns seemingly in the middle of nowhere, and local bars are a great place to enjoy a live concert.

São Miguel might be small, but there is so much to explore. Why not get a longer term car rental, extend your vacation, and discover more? You can even pick up your rental car at Ponta Delgada Airport and drop it off in the city center or at another location. Start planning your adventure now!
