    Definitely a must see on the island!
    I had seen pictures of these lakes online so had some idea of what to expect. They aren’t as strikingly different in color as some of the pictures lead you to believe, but it is still impressive to see neighboring lakes appearing to be completely different colors. The best viewpoints are high above the lakes and can only be reached by strenuous hiking or with 4x4 vehicles.

    Beautiful lake
    Sete Cidades literally means seven cities. There were six cities surrounding the volcano. When they were under attack, they moved into the volcano caldera and established a seventh city that was hidden from pirates. I walked around the caldera lake. It is quite beautiful.

    Gorgeous area of Sao Miguel!
    The area here and around here is a gorgeous part of Sao Miguel island! Breathtaking views at every curve, be sure to stop and enjoy the look-out points! We spent our entire first morning after our flight landed driving the western part of Sao Miguel - just beautiful!!!

Many people look at these lakes from the high vista points = stunning, many come to the Sete Cidades and walk/hike around the lakes... but we actually enjoy the short stop right by the bridge connecting the Lagoa Verde and Lagoa Azul - a little down to earth beach front, with stunning views and plenty of ducks :) this was a very pleasant stop on the way "out of the caldera"

This is a beautiful site to see. Just make sure you go on a sunny day and make sure there is no fog in the mountains before you venture out.

Decided on a short walk around Lagoa Verde as my map indicated a circular route all the way round. Started up a well made track on the left side of the lake as you look at it from the road. All very easy until I got to the woods where there was some fallen down netting across the path. I wondered, but pressed on. There have obviously been some quite severe storms and landslips and I soon encountered a large unstable pile of mud, boulders and vegetation which I crossed quickly but carefully. That was just for starters! The next half mile section of old path and rotting wooden steps was blocked by fallen trees and debris at least a dozen times and towards the end there was a horribly steep mud bank that I was only able to cross by grabbing the toughest looking tree roots above and slithering across above a 10 foot drop. What should have taken me 10 minutes turned into a quite stressful half hour. When I had completed this section I looked back and wondered 'what the f**k made me think that was a good idea' - having said that I did get a sort of perverse satisfaction from having managed it. So.... not impossible but definitely not at all easy. You have been warned.

I combined three hiking trails for a total of 30km and covered a large part of the seven cities area.
The lagoon is beautiful and throughout the tour there are spectacular views

At first I just thought these were two lakes. But they are much more. You can hike, bike, drive, picnic, kayak, paddleboard,
and see the lakes from the ground or from above. We rented the paddleboard and kayak at Futurismo Azores Adventures which is located on the lake. The staff was so amazing, friendly and kind. The price to rent a two person kayak was 10 EUROS per hour. These volcanically created lakes offer a sense of peace and tranquility. We did all of the above during our 3 night stay in the quaint town of Sete Cidades.

These lakes are gorgeous. The blue lake isn't as blue as it once was according to our guide. There is still a contrast in color between the 2 lakes.

The Crater Lakes of the Azores, Green and Blue Lakes are a definite must see when here. Though not as different as their nicknames may indicate, the tranquility of the area is unbeatable. Blue lake is as beautiful as the the sky at a depth of 33 meters.
Green Lake has unbeatable reflections, with a depth of 19 meters.
