“Pretty good, but not the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

This was a pretty awesome view, but I liked Sete Cidades better. But even so, this is still a pretty breathtaking place. I'd still go back, maybe do a hike or something. Use the azores cam app to see if there's fog or not before you go.

“The most beatiful "Lagoa" in São Miguel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Yes, Sete Cidades is gorgous, but for me this "Lagoa" is the most beautiful in São Miguel...
It really worthes the visit.
It was a pity I couldn not go there walking, as I was with my two young kids.
Well worthes the visit...

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Make sure you visit when the clouds and fog have not rolled in. The views are breathtaking. We hiked down to the lake and it is such a special place. So green and lush. It is much cooler so make sure you bring a sweater and or jacket.

“Lovely, unspoiled spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Lovely to see, difficult to get to, as you have to walk down (then up) to see it up close. The trail is not for amateurs. If you are not that athletic, just stop at one of the overlooks and take it all in. The drive there is nice.
