Part of a nice long hike in Sete Cidades
Aug 2019
We visited this beautiful lake as part of a long hike in Sete Cidades. There are many lakes in the area. There is no one specific lake that should be the final destination, but rather plan on going on a hike that will cover a number of lakes and other site.

A Magnificent Secluded Crater
Aug 2019
This is a majestic crater and it is obscured by a cedar forest. When you approach it it appears from the trees in all its magnificence. Natural beauty in abundance.

Busier than expected, but the lakes and the viewpoint are worth a visit
May 2019 • Couples
From the description in guide books and the forbidding appearance of the entrance to the estate, we thought we might have the place to ourselves. How wrong can you be? This was mid-May, hardly high-season, and it was very busy - there was even a traffic jam at the second lake. However, the lakes are pretty enough to be worth a visit, but do also continue to the viewpoint of Miradouro Pico do Paul. For us the view was partly obscured by cloud (even though we waited for several minutes to see if it would clear), but it was still worth the effort to see it.

Nice surprise
Jun 2019 • Friends
We went on a cloudy day and were pleasantly surprised. This place is so peaceful! Absolutely loved it. Such a shame cars are allowed up there though.

Beautiful network of lakes
Apr 2019 • Family
A great place to wander while exploring the west side of Sao Miguel. Good parking and a number of walking trails.

Beautiful views, great hiking trail
Apr 2019 • Couples
Take the Serra Devassa hiking trail which begins at the end of the Lagoa do Canario parking lot. This hike has incredible views. Main trail is 4.9 km and loops around a couple of lakes up and down the peaks with a couple additional side trails to explore. We spent a little over 2 hours here which gave plenty of time to explore the side trails and take lots of pictures. Trails are clearly marked so you do not go the wrong way. Most of hike is relatively easy though there are some steep slopes that may be difficult for those who are out of shape. Be sure to wear comfortable footwear as there are lots of rocks of varying sizes throughout the trail.

I wish cars weren't allowed directly to the lake
Mar 2019 • Couples
The nature is beautiful, but I wish cars didn't drive all the way to the lake and beyond - make tourists park on the start of the hiking trail and walk to the lake if they wish, keeping the silence and atmosphere of the nature. Beyond the lake there are walking only trails at last.

This is one view that I thought was enhanced by the fog - in case you're there on a cloudy day
Nov 2018 • Couples
We were in the area on a rainy day that meant very few of the views we saw were as beautiful as they are in photos. With the green water against the green trees here, it was enhanced by the fog, I thought - the fog gave it another dimension...

Beautiful area
Nov 2018 • Couples
One of many stunning areas on the island. Lots of trees and a peaceful atmosphere here. Take the car, or take a hike. Come early in the morning to avoid other tourists and enjoy the silence.

Nice but nothing special
Apr 2018 • Couples
It is a very beautiful hidden, reserve like lake, but really not a wow. If you come close to the road when you on your way to tour the island then do not miss it. I would not go there specially.
