The Best Hostels in Ponta Delgada in the Azores

The Best Hostels in Ponta Delgada in the Azores
Ponta Delgada is the largest and most visited city in the Azores. White-washed houses and buildings, 17th and 18th Century convents and churches decorate its rolling hills. Cobbled streets and small squares are found around the center, where there is also a large boulevard, which is perfect for evening seaside walks. Today, Ponta Delgada is the most developed city in the Azores, with fantastic historic buildings and smart restaurants. You can float in brackish thermal waters at the 18th-century Terra Nostra estate nearby, now a botanical wonderland of ferny groves and gardens nurturing azaleas, camellias, hydrangeas, ginger lilies and cycads. When the fog peels back from Mirador do Rei lookout, the view of Sete Cidades is simply staggering. Local lore has it that these twin crater lakes were formed by the tears shed by a pair of star-crossed lovers: a green-eyed princess and a blue-eyed shepherd. High on your itinerary, too, should be a dip in the pool at Caldeira Velha waterfall, a hike in the Lagoa de Fogo nature reserve and a visit to the time-warp that is Gorreana, Europe's only tea plantation, little-changed since it opened in 1883. With the huge variety of things to do and see in the Ponta Delgada area, you can also find some great options for cost-friendly accommodations to use as a base while you explore the beautiful surroundings.
