It is a very beautiful hidden, reserve like lake, but really not a wow. If you come close to the road when you on your way to tour the island then do not miss it. I would not go there specially.

You have stunning mountain views from this lake where the fish come to the waters edge close enough to almost touch. Very serene as you hear the birds. Quiet, calming,spiritual.

This place is real easy to miss if you're not on a tour . not signposted and only a small sign on the little road leading to it. Use a GPS app to find it and go. Perfect place for a picnic.

A beautiful and peaceful place to stop at in the middle of the walk called the Serra Devassa Trail. If you get there, do not miss the other lakes, such as Canario and Santiago.
