Visit the Island at The Start or at the End of Your Sailing Holiday
Most of our clients spent before or at the end of a sailing holiday with Azores Sailing a few days on the Island of San Miguel. Before they depart or at the start of their holiday.
You need approximately 3 days to explore the island. Distances by car are short but as the island is a vulcanic island, some roads are narrow and steep.
