Beautiful views but the terrain is rugged. Certainly one of the areas one should visit when in Sao Miguel. Our tour guide Ricardo or Carlos from Amazing tours always add this stop when we are out and about touring the island. Views are always better on a sunny day.

The day I went it was real foggy and then it began to clear. I took a hike down to the water and it was so beautiful. Foggy or clear, this is an amazing place.

This crater lake is surrounded by beautiful scenery in the mountain. The viewpoint by the roadside captures not only the scenery of the lake but also both sides of the mountain. One can do hiking around the lake for 1-2 hours. I came here on a day tour and it was one of the main attractions in Azores. Don't miss... More

On a foggy day ( but it seems normal in the middle of the Atlantic ),we got to the viewpoints with few hope of being able to see something. Turns out we waited a while, and the fog opened for a while se we were able to see it. And that's really an amazing view, worth waiting. If it's foggy,... More

Outstanding view from above, the path down looks dodgy, important to have the right shoes and equipment, as there is only a steep climb back up to the road.

This was our favourite lake on the island. The hike down to the lake from the road was not too strenuous, although there are quite a few steep steps. Once you're down there, it's so serene. The walk around the lake was wonderful. We swam in the lake to cool off and just relaxed on the beach. A wonderful spot... More
