We rented one of the two properties on the lake, and thoroughly enjoyed having this gem to ourselves. The house was equipped with bicycles, kayaks, and the keys to the gardens, so we could walk in the garden anytime. The park has huge stands of...More

Pretty lake with lots of hiking possibilities around it. The colour of the water when the sun shines is incredible.

We spent a full day here with a local family who rose at 3am to prepare a meal cooked in the ground by the heat of the geothermal springs. Was such a great time. Highly recommend for families.

We chose this as our first walk of our week's holiday, a gentle introduction to walking and an easy and pleasant walk. Starting in the car park, 50cents per person to enter, you can visit the facilities before setting off, look at the caldeiras and...More

This is one of three major volcanic crater lakes on Sao Miguel. The drive to this lake is gorgeous and very easy from Ponta Delgada. Whether you rent a car or take a bus tour, you will find this lake charming and beautiful. Highly recommended....More

Easy to underestimate this lake - really, when compared to Fogo, Azul and Verde, it's not in the same league. However, it shouldn't be missed if you're in Furnas. If you're in a "walk in the park" mood. The circumnavigation tails might take 4 or...More

Interesting place, this. Arguably the least impressive of the major crater lakes on the island...however, what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in other ways. Very interesting to see the fumaroles, and it doesn't take all that long to get accustomed to the...More

Nature is impressive, but almost nothing is done for the customers. I visited place few days ago, €8, and to my surprise just few rooms to charge clothes. No place to put clothes by the pool. Beautiful park.
