Reasonably priced to go (around 2 Euros), you can picnic by the lake or have some food cooked in the ground by the volcanic heat.

Its a huge lake and ideal for a picnic spot. Closeby is a small area which has the hot springs that you can visit and then you can walk around the lake which will take you around 3-4 hrs.

After a very nice journey to the destination, your view on the lake opens up behind many trees and you will be gifted with an overwhelming view! The entrance costs only 2€ and is worth every cent. Also the hot springs are very impressive and...More

One of the main sites in S. Miguel. Worth to go first for a swim and then go to the lookout point and see the lagoon from the top.

A nice gentle walk can take you round the entire lake with more difficult walks taking you into the hills. It is very peaceful and has to be one of my favourite places on the island, away from it all.

We checked out the gothic church (note that the doors are locked and you can't actually go in) then we drove over to see the thermal holes. It's worth the price of admission into the parking lot! We parked and walked around checking out the...More

After the Caldera and a local restaurant lunch we had a good walk around the shores of the lake, a great way to see the local flora which was in a profusion of colours.

Lovely lagoon sourranded by hills and lush green forest. One can find lots of hiking trails, the hot volcanic solfataras, a botanical garden and an old church around. Nice place to spend a few hours here.
