The most beautiful natural wonders to be seen on the island of São Miguel. It is near the 7 cities and access is easy. Should take a day with little fog to enjoyed the local maximum.

Got to see the fish in the lake and stuck my hand in the moss. The walk down showed some stunning forestry and really liked that it was secluded.

My husband used to come here for family picnics as a child. Very beautiful national park now and well worth the visit.

If you have time, go ahead, it's a nice stop. But it doesn't compare to the other highlights of the island.

A stunning place to see, along with friendly ducks who are clearly used to being fed, but a treacherous drive to get to. Not entirely sure the white knuckle journey was justified by a very pretty lake at the end. Take a picnic and explore the woods, but hire a 4x4 to get there.

Went here early in the morning, I was the only one on the property. Beautiful place, very quiet. You can walk around the lakes. Or use your car (but that takes out much of the zen).

two smaller lagoons hidden in a dense bush with more than 500 years, some eutrophisation occurring but nevertheless a quaint scenery to be enjoyed

Some of the beautiful lagoons in the Island of São Miguel worth a visit. If you do a tour around the island, visit these lagoons as well.

This place is relatively hard to get to by car and while it's an interesting landscape, I'd not say it's a must-go. There are many hiking opportunities nearby though.

These are so beautiful. There are also some beautiful hiking trails. Take the time to walk around. Try to go on a day that is not foggy. They are gorgeous.
