The trail starts in the prettiest of valleys, and it's only a short hike up through pretty woodland on an easy enough path to the first waterfall. Unlike many of the waterfalls we visited on Sao Miguel, this one actually had plenty of water (always...More

This is one of the best hikes you can do in Sao Miguel. There are 2 waterfalls and a nice view during all the path. I would say is of medium difficulty.

Amazing waterfall, but one hour driving from Ponta Delgada, then walking one hour up, another hour down, with our 4 years old and 9 months old. I don t recommand this place with small children, it is dangerous. Also you have to take good shoes.

For experienced hikers, the walk to the waterfall is an easy-to-moderate 40-minutes or so, and well worth the journey. Along the way, we were greeted by a very tame family of chickens, likely used to being fed by passers by. I'm not sure how they...More
