“Beautiful Views Up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

The lakes are nice, Lagoa do Fogo is a bit nicer view and a more secluded, not touched. The views on the way up to the lakes are what I really enjoyed. Spectacular views of both sides of the island and the lush green landscape. Multiple spots you could pull over and take in the view. There's places for you to walk or drive up.

“Lovely mountain lakes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

These lakes stand out for their location high in the hills of San Miguel. Their cold and form are lovely. Drive up and park then take the short hike to Lagoa Rasa.

“presidential”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

I was in Punta Delgada in December and despite being the sole
booking, the local tour company were happy to set up a full day
tour of the island just for me at their regular price. I had a driver
and guide, a delightful Finnish young lady-Noora all to myself.
It felt like I was the president of Portugal with this exclusive
attention. Despite the weather the tour and sightseeing were
wonderful. The Azores have not been spoilt by mass tourism
and long may they stay that way.
