I tried to drive to the lake but saw 2 other cars get stuck on the steep slope! I reversed out & then noticed the road was only suitable for 4 wheel drive vehicles! I parked on the road & walked up. It didn’t take...More

we discover these 2 lakes during our island tour; easy to walk around and discover all spectacular volcanic sites.

This place is real easy to miss if you're not on a tour . not signposted and only a small sign on the little road leading to it. Use a GPS app to find it and go. Perfect place for a picnic.

A beautiful and peaceful place to stop at in the middle of the walk called the Serra Devassa Trail. If you get there, do not miss the other lakes, such as Canario and Santiago.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! It fills your heart with peace! It may not be very good to go there during summer, Too many people prevent you from enjoying it totally.

This Lagoa was part of a 4 hour tour, so we visited several other Logoas. Very nice and the Echo Chamber/ Valley was really interesting.... if you YODEL, this place is Heaven....

A short walk from the car you go down a few steps to reach the lake. Big carp swam up to the shore so they must be used to being fed. Pretty but not spectacular like some of the other lakes.

Its a fantastic place for visit, near Canário lake. Really simple, 2 lakes with side walk making 8 form. Good for a family walk, you have also some tables to enjoy a pic nic or nice chat. Keep it clean... and 😉 enjoy

Small lagoon situated in the end of a very steep dirt road, but very much worth the travel. I went there on a foggy afternoon and that secluded place seemed magical!! I loved it

We were encouraged to hike this trail instead of the longer one around Sete Cidades. It was a mistake. The trail map is poor and the treacherous hike in a stream coming down the mountain not worth the lake views, especially since you can drive...More
