it was worth seeing but not worth a special drive to there. If driving up to the mountain then head down the other way and stop along and see the area. nice views but not as nice as lakes in San Miguel (Like sete cidades and Lagoa da fogo)

A very nice lake with a wonderful view of Pico. Here, however, we can really feel authentic nature, observe animals, plants and enjoy the fresh air. Just a minute from the main road. Worth seeing.

Get a taxi to take you up. Then, walk the trail down. It is about 10km of memorable pleasure, wonderful lanscapes,fresh pure air, green vegetation and melodic birds'singing, just like a compass to the walking.
Try it!

Not the first time visiting and not the last I hope.
This place is magical. I feel so zen here.
Worth the visit

The weather/clouds in this area of the island can be tricky to time, but chances are you will drive through this area at least once and it's a decent stop just to relax for a moment from pure driving, although pretty scenic one :)

The ducks were definitely an added bonus here :) I was surprised they didn't fly away from these pretty brutal, that day, conditions

TIP: when we were there it was extremely windy and really cold at the end of April, though it was the "cloudy" version of the area we got to experience

Cool little lake with some decent views. We visited when it was pretty foggy and rainy so the views weren’t as good as they could have been. Still a nice lake worth a visit.

The lake itself is rather small, but the views on Pico volcano and the island of Sao Jorge are awesome. As always in life, best to go on a clear day.

For me it was just one of hundred views in Azores. Hiking trail and cows are there too. Interesting thing is that the lake is in the end of 10km straight road, maybe the longest straight road in Portugal.

Beautiful small lake on plateau. You have to walk around the lake on the right side and behind small hill to enjoy spectacular view to the north coast and Sao Jorge island weather permitting.
