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 there without getting lost!

This lake was a beautiful stop for a picnic. There really isn't anything to do here except walk around a large lake so if you are looking for a lot of hiking opportunities, this would not a be a good spot.

NO! There are no restaurants or food places here at all!....just beauty by the lakeful!
We had made some homemade butties to take on our drive out of Ponta Delgarda and were on the lookout for somewhere peaceful to stop and have a munch!
THIS was IT!
As we sat with our butties a car arrived...a young man got out, assembled his windsurf board and took to the water....it was like having our own, personal entertainment!
It is obviously not easy to get here....but, if you get a chance to stop by....DO!

The lakes were utterly still and the trees reflections in the mirrored water were beautiful - the moss growing around the sides of the lakes were the most amazing luminous green ! loved it

We stopped here on our tour and walked the short path to the waters edge. It was a picturesque vista that we really enjoyed.
