The Lagoa is beautiful, we only did snorkeling but it was breathtaking. The water was super blue and a bit cool (which was great as it was very hot outside). Only one group at time is allowed in the Lagoa so it wasn't crowded at all (we were about 8 people in our group). Anyway, worth checking it out.

The lake is very Blue due to magnesium deposits. We weren't expecting it to be such a nice colour, as pictures are often deceiving - but it's just like the pictures. This is suitable for first time divers, we went in without knowing how to scuba dive - we could only go 8 meters deep for safety reasons. Not many... More

The dive was down to around 25-30 meters in one spot, and another 20 meters in the other spot. I did not go diving in the last 6-7 years, and this dive was probably the most easy dive I have ever had. The water is super clean with 60 meters of visibility. When I was down at 30 meters, I... More

Great snorkelling as I could not dive due a cold, but that was enough to explore it, short dives and admire the blue water and the dancing rays of light.

I combined this with Rio De Patra. The walk in was pleasant but if you have trouble with stairs this is not for you. The lake is at the bottom of a very steep set of stairs. You enter into the most incredibly blue water. The guide took lots of pictures of the people in the group with their cameras... More

The colour of water is very beautiful and it is so clear,you can see 60 mts down. Tip:they didnt provide me with the suit because they told me it wouldn't be cold,its better to... More

The lagoa misteriosa is basically a small lagoon with two deep trenches in it (going 220m+ and interconnected at about 60m). The water is incredibly clear and you can practically see the clear reflection of the trees from a depth of 30m. Not really any marine life aside from some small eels and a pretty basic dive, but it is... More
