As the capital of both São Miguel and the islands themselves, Ponta Delgada is the most touristic location where you may find others who also speak English. This is also the place to go for commercial shopping, museums, and both local and exotic foods.

Noteworthy things to see in Ponta Delgada include the three arches that make up the Portas da Cidade ("doors to the city"), the Forte de São Brás (a 16th-century fortress) and multiple churches built during the late Renessaince era.
