Amazing place, well known in the area. Lots of people during the Summer months, as well as holidays and weekends. Please be mindful of this amazing natural spot and respect the place! <3

If you want to be surrounded by nature, feel the fresh water and the waterfalls on your back, rest above huge rocks, walk in the forest.. this is the place. For sure a local to visit again and essential to recharge your "batteries" :)

You can drive to the small stream with the pool for swimming in the summer from the São Simão village. Or you walk down the narrow path - sturdy shoes are recommended. Calm place and good for taking photos of the riverbanks.

Not easy to get to, but well worth it. From photo opportunities to swimming and trekking it's stunningly pretty. A little bar is open in the summer too.

Stunning gorge with crystal swimming pools. Well worth the drive, and the walk down the road to get there. Steep but you can do it in flip-flops, though the same can't be said of the 5km walk along the river.
