We wanted to go to the view point but not with the car so we took the park next to the caldeiras of the lake.

The way up is awesome with some parts a bit more difficult or slippery but nothing undoable if you are used to hike a bit.

On the top the view on the lake is really perfect.

Our only disappointment is that we had to go down by the same path as the other one was closed.

But after the easy hike around the lake, the hike up to the view point is more than nice to do :D

Drive fromFurnas to Ribeira Grande. On the road that cuts through the middle of the island you will see a sign pointing to this viewpoint. The Furnas golf course is on either side of the road. Don’t stop at the first parking lot but keep going and you can park right at the top for a great view without the climb

When driving in the Azores look out for any sign on the road that says Miradouro (translation viewpoint) you will never be disappointed.

We choose to walk uphill (and downhill) and it was quite a walk, it is pretty steep path, but the lookout is amazing. You can also acces easily by car.

Absolutely stunning view point. Really glad we took the time to come and see it.

Easy parking below but a very steep walk (short, 2 mins) to get to the view point, which wouldn't be suitable for disabled access.

Would recommend coming if you good and taking in the incredible vista

You could make this hike a long one or a short one .
I started assenting towards the view point around 6 pm from near the parking lot and washrooms by the caldeiras of Lagoa do Furnas ( the is a small sign there indicating the pass)
I believe this steep hike to the point is around 2 km one way.
You could get to the top and continue down towards the the lake again passing the abandoned house at the bottom, I think it used to be a summer residence for the former dictator , that place poses for really nice pictures .
And continuing that way must be adding another 5 km or so.
I wanted to get back to my car before dark, so I those the short version.
Loved the view from the top, and hike was short , but challenging 🙂

We stopped here on our drive into Furnas. What a way to be introduced to this special area! It was great to snap some photos from above and then find locations as we explored. It's really a beautiful spot.

The view is great. Unfortunately, there is always a cloud to remember you to check the climate before going there.
