This was one stop on our day trip. Great view. If you're into photos it's worth it. Otherwise, just a view. But what a view!

The whole island of Sao Miguel is stunning, but the views on Lagoa do Fogo are just amazing. Wherever you stop the car you will have an experience. We did stop the car and had a long walk on the mountain barefoot!! The place is impecably clean, so looked after. We had a wonderful excursion.

A fabulous lake, cobalt blue in the sunshine, total silence apart from the birds and trees rustling in the breeze. Great walks around it and up into the hills.

This is an excellent day hike. I recommend to drive and leave a car at the trailhead then go up the left side of the loop first - it's steep but it's nice to come down the other side which is a gradual (still steep) incline. The levada you walk by is really nice and the view at the top... More

fantastic view which you can drive to a brilliant viewpoint (handy when you have two small children with you and one of them is refusing to get out of the car)

Lagoa das 7 Cidades is the most famous one, but this one is also a must!! Hard to find a day with no fog there in early June, but for 1 hour I was able to see that view
