The Azores has some of the most amazing scenery, almost anywhere on the islands. Would definitely recommend a visit!

One of the most beautiful lagoons in the Island. One should do a round trip in the island and visit the several lagoons.

The walk from Praia is quite steep and a bit of a slog to begin with. After a while the path skirts alongside an aqueduct through luscious vegetation.

I've seen the pictures, I've heard the stories but... when we got there we saw... fog! Lots of it! This lake is very high and it is often covered with mist.

This is an absolute must see in Sao Miguel island. Although many people suggest that it is better if you get to this place when it is not foggy, I disagree! We got this place with fast moving fog that was allowing visibility some times and others hiding the scenery and it was magical. If you are in an okay... More
