5 Seconds in the Azores

The island of Sao Miguel in the Azores is one of 8 volcanic islands nestled on the coast of Portugal. On our trip there earlier in the year we discovered so much beauty and so many cultural gems that we had to put a few together that, in our opinion, are must-see destinations. This week’s 5 Second Guide brings you some of our favourite spots around Sao Miguel. Enjoy!
