Terceira Island has so much to offer and is quite beautiful and in order to appreciate its beauty, you definitely want to see it from Serra do Cume viewpoint.

The view is fantastic as you look down on the land below to the sea, but when the clouds roll in you don't see anything. Pick a clear day for this vista.

Impressing... you will like to visit this and get some nice pics. It worths the kilometers. Chose a clear day otherwise you will only see clouds and maybe get a cold due to strong and cold winds... No tickets are needed to visit

Fantastic views of the pastures. Interesting design. The look out platform is great. It was very windy while we were there. The sign had blown down. Steep walk up and down. Be prepared.

This viewpoint is excellent. Though only worthwhile if the sky is clear. You can the neatly quilt landscape of the island and quite a few meadows.

If you've been to any of the other islands this view will be underwhelming. However if you don't have much else to do on Terceira I guess it is worthwhile driving up here.

We went by organised tour up to this view point which initially was bathed in sunlight but by the time we reached it we had literally 5 minutes to take our photos before the clouds obscured the view. The contrast was very beautiful, the misty...More

You have a nice view of Terceira. On both sides there is a platform. Easy to find, signs on the roadside.

Beautiful drive with a spectacular view of the island at the top! Loved to see the cows so far up in the pastures. If I were a cow, I'd want to live there! Incredible, breathtaking and pictures will never do it justice. I could have...More
