Definitely stop for a few minutes at this viewpoint! Easy to park or just park along the road if spots are full. Beautiful vistas over the ocean and lots of space to picnic if you want to do that. This spot is home to quite a few cats, which my nephews enjoyed interacting with! Also be sure to visit Miradauro da Ponta do Sossego, which is just a couple minutes up the road and is similarly beautiful with gardens and vistas.

The drive between Nordeste and Furnas is amazing. Beautiful cliff side roads and scenery. This is one of the best two miradouros on the drive IMO.

Not as nice as Ponta Sossego, but still worth the stop. Beautiful views of cliffs wherever one looks. Very clean and a great place for a picnic or barbecue. Supposedly it's a great place for sunsets, but we didn't risk it as we had to drive back to Ponta Delgada in the dark.

This is a lovely spot to stop for a short break. The gardens are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. You truly feel like you are in the clouds. There are a few cats wandering around and you will hear birds and smell the fragrant flowers. Lots of places to sit and admire the beauty. Truly a magical spot on earth!

We stopped and enjoyed the incredible scenery. It really wasn’t warm enough to stay for long. But if it was warmer we would have enjoyed a picnic lunch there. They also have a washroom which is handy. Beautiful gardens and pathways to walk.

This lookout has some of the best views of the east coast especially if you don’t checkout the lighthouse. It is more than a little picnic spot. There are dozens of picnic tables made of volcanic rock that are covered in moss which makes it seem like a forgotten grove. Very quaint. Also clean bathrooms

This garden is close to Nordeste in the easternmost part of Sao Miguel island. This part of the island is wild and raw with heavy vegetation.You can see from the surrounding moss that it has been around for a long time. The garden has some waterfalls and good picnic spots.

If you are allergic to cats you probably want to skip this stop, or if you dislike cats :) as there is so many of them here, peacefully chilling - it appears to be almost like a cat refuge, it's thus not the super cleanest and you can smell odor at times, but overall it's very clean, especially if you consider how many cats share it.

Putting cats to the side, this is a nice vista stop worth checking out - there are a few parking spots prepared for visitors, I think it's a no brainer while you drive through this area of the island - which is all about these type of stops along the eastern coast.
