    Beautiful view over the lake and through beautiful landscapes. In the case of medium-heavy, absolutely sturdy shoes and a snack to eat and drink

    One of the island's natural highlights, if not the islands. Surrounded by seagull shouting you approach this lake, which shines in blue or green depending on the sunlight.

    Be sure to see the hidden waterfall behind the village and take the right path at the parking lot about 1.5 km above the granary and do not follow the sign Lagoa do Fogo 600m. The sign only says that the hiking trail starts in 600 m and it actually goes 8 km uphill. But if you take the steep ascent to the right at the parking lot, you can then go back the normal way at the lake and come flat along the levadas and so the descent is more relaxed. You then have a nice round room instead of going up and down the same way,
