When visiting by vehicle you park up and walk through a tunnel onto the lip of the Caldera where you get a perfect view of an almost perfect circular extinct volcano.
The trail takes you around the entire length of the crater, and you can get a great view of just about every part of Faial from up there.

Have been to the Azores many times but this last visit was amazing - weather hot but sunny, lots of things going on, site seeing etc.
one of my favourite corners f the island, always pristine and attracting, enticing its visitors for a dive even in wINTER

The view to the Pico Island, that just rises from the sea to its 2300m, and all the paintings at the marina, done by lots of the sailing crews passing by, make this place absolutely unique!
Great harbor Pico view Great drawings from the cross-Atlantic sailors Enjoyed our time to stroll around

This beach has a snack bar, a slightly fancier outdoor dining restaurant, bathrooms, showers, and both a black sandy beach or a concrete beach that you can jump off.
Since the weather is rather mild there are plenty of days to visit the beach and swim or relax on the sand.

Gardens are divided to those plants that are native and those that are invasive along with an orchid house.
I can only imagine how gorgeous it is when all the flowers are in bloom during season.

Our lasting memory of Ramiro and our day together is his polite, un-stressed, flexible and friendly manners – and the way he shared all the treasures of his home island with us.
Always attentive to the details that nature sometimes provides, he showed us buzzards (milhafre) flying with rodents in the claws and we also saw a small calf suckling.

Fortunately the weather cooperated so we took the hike up along the ridge which contains great views of the black moonlike terrain and the coastline which changes every few meters.
Amazing volcanic activity has left new land on Faial that you can explore, climb and hike.
