It was foggy the day we were here so the view was not as spectacular as we'd hoped. We could see a little of the coastline but we were disappointed overall.

A stop off point for most island coach tours and can visit by car or on foot. Amazing views of lake and valley below. Also car park and gift shop. After visit head down to the lake.

It has an extraordinary view but, if you can, please go down and take a walk. It is absolutely amazing!

The best views over the lake and the small town. Very crowded due to the number of cruise ships in town. Renovation works going on to extend the viewpoint.

An easy drive up view to a nice view over Furnas town and logoa. Beautiful gardens and picnic area at the top. No hiking involved.

We drove up to the lookout point - really spectacular views of all of Fernas - it was super windy so we didn’t stay long. We considered hiking down to the Caldeiras da Lago below but didn’t bring a trail map so maybe next time.
