“Feels like your in the lands of Jurassic Park.”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Green, green and more green.. There's a reason why they call San Miguel Island the Green Island (Ilha Verde).

A lake situated in a volcanic crater.. Up from the top all you see around you is the sea.. The vast Atlantic Ocean.

One of the most beautiful places i've been in the World.. A must see if you are renting a car.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

The land escape is beautiful. To come closer to the lagoon, you have to walk for about half an hour and the path is not very easy.

“Wonderful view”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

This was one stop on our day trip. Great view. If you're into photos it's worth it. Otherwise, just a view. But what a view!

“Most amazing views!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The whole island of Sao Miguel is stunning, but the views on Lagoa do Fogo are just amazing.
Wherever you stop the car you will have an experience.
We did stop the car and had a long walk on the mountain barefoot!!
The place is impecably clean, so looked after. We had a wonderful excursion.
