It was more than three decades ago that I first visited the Azores, Portugal’s stunning mid-Atlantic archipelago of nine islands. I remarked then that those verdant, volcanic islands, with their precipitous cliffs, abundant fruits and flowers and bubbling sulfurous springs, were the loveliest “undiscovered” tourist destination that I had ever seen. And so it was with considerable trepidation that I returned last spring, knowing that Ponta Delgada on the main island of Sao Miguel had become a major cruise ship port, that golf courses had been constructed there, too. I feared that I would return to find high-rise hotels blocking the exquisite views I remembered over the green-blue sea.
