    Wonderful views
    Amazing views! This main view is just by parking so is suitable for anyone to enjoy. Parking places get very busy however most people do not stay for very long. We parked up and walked through the forest continuing on the top of hill with wonderful views. Place was less busy in the morning however mornings can be very misty.

    Unique!
    We waited days to see this view, while we didn’t get to get the whole picture, it still was amazing. Go down into town to walk around the lakes. Download the Spot the Azores app to make sure you can see cameras in real time to check out the view.

    Amazing views
    What an amazing view we had from the lookout. We tried to view the lakes yesterday but the clouds ere too low and we couldn’t see anything through the clouds. Our guide asked us if we wanted to try again today and the group unanimously agreed and once we drove to the top of the caldera we were all impressed with what we saw. The view was spectacular. Well worth going back.

    Breathtaking beauty!
    This place is gorgeous. I went one day and it was too foggy to get the best view, so I went back on a clear day. The guide said that the Azores can experience four seasons in a day. Fog is common. It’s a breathtaking place to see!

Caldeira das Sete Cidades is a must-see destination that offers an incredible experience. The 23 km hike around the twin lakes is nothing short of spectacular, providing breathtaking views and a true sense of adventure. The lush landscapes and vibrant colors of the lakes make every step worthwhile. My only suggestion is the addition of more restrooms along the trail. Despite this, it's an unforgettable journey that showcases the stunning beauty of the Azores. Highly recommended! Wear good hiking shoes as the terrain can be slippery.

This marvel is a must see site. Gorgeous landscape with 2 different colour lakes that are connected. Legend has it… the 2 colours represent the tears of lovers separated by social standards.

Absolutely gorgeous. You may need to be patient because of the fog that’s typical on the islands, but it’s worth the wait. And even with the fog, it’s still beautiful. A must see if you’re on the island.

This is must when visiting Sao Miguel, but be sure to only go on a clear day otherwise you won't be able to see anything.
