    What a good place to enjoy in the sea while the hot springs in the water mix with sea. Not to mention a joy when waves causes that swimmers sychronical move here and there.

    Steep hike with “wow” views. The trail wasn’t overly crowded, many opportunities to capture breathtaking views. After descending more than 1/2 way down the mountain, there’s a short but sturdy ladder. Most hikers can make it to the lake in an hour, but more time is needed to explore down by the shoreline. Hiking shoes recommended for some rocky and muddy areas. Hot springs are just a drive down the road from here. Unfortunately we didn’t make it there before closing time.

    The hike is very tough from the parking lot and around the ridgeline. It was a very windy day so we had to be very careful with our headgear. The views are spectacular which made the trip an amazing journey, The steep descent into town was difficult but we made it. We stopped for tea at O Poejo and they called us a taxi to take us back to the parking lot. An exhausting 3-hour hike but well worth the effort.

    We walked around this place. It’s very cute and Europe feel with narrowed allay ways, paved pathways (typical of Portuguese), white washed wall, etc. much bigger than Terceira, but smaller than Madeira. We enjoyed our few hours of stop over there

    It is true - the muddy (iron) waters are really hot! these hot springs are absolutely beautiful and perfect to relax your body and mind. Perfect set for couples and lovely surrounding gardens. Enjoy the jaccuzi after leaving the main hotspring.

    Small, simple, good. The route is without a guide. There are QR-codes on the route to scan for information. There is also a place to drink and/or eat something.

    It's not extraordinary. They're just a few small neat glasshouses. Not a lifechanging experience, just fine.

    With the longer and more involved tours not running when we went, the only option is the short 30 minute tour to go down into the main areas of the caves. It's very simple and short. You cant go into either of the two portions of the cave more than about 100 or so meters. You get a little info about how the caves are formed. Ultimately it's not overly involved but at such a cheap price and a short amount of time, it's worth a stop to see. If you've not been in caves/lava tubes before then it is something new.

    While we were waiting to enter Caldeira Verhe near by, we accidentally spot the sign fir this sight. Uau, we were surprised by the beauty of the place.

    We visited this beautiful lake as part of a long hike in Sete Cidades. There are many lakes in the area. There is no one specific lake that should be the final destination, but rather plan on going on a hike that will cover a number of lakes and other site.

    Fabulous little church. Gold plated chapel with holy cross. Small place but it’s nice we were able to see it. Not far from the main square. Some say this square is nicer but I think the one in municipality is nicer

    Fabulous place with an amazing view. The climb is tough, but the view is worth it. A paradise between sky and sea!

    We must pay tribute to the Portuguese -they sincerely love San Sebastian. The image of the head of the Praetorian guard of the Emperor Diocletian excited most artists who wrote on biblical themes from Botticelli and Titian to Salvador Dali. There are at least four churches dedicated to him even in the Azores, Pico,Terceira,and San Miguel as many as two. Maybe the people of Ponta Delgada chose a Roman General as the patron Saint of the city for his steadfastness. After all, he survived according to legend, even when shot with arrows. The Church itself was built between 1531 and 1547 in honor of the end of the plague. As often happens, it is a mix of styles-Gothic, Baroque and Portuguese manuelino. The reason for the mixture of styles is in permanent reconstructions, for example, the clock was installed at the end of the XIX century.

    Great park, located inside a green valley full of nature. Unfortunately, when my girlfriend and I arrived, the path was closed for work.
    Nevertheless, it is a beautiful place to spend a couple of hours.

    On a par with the Blue Lagoon in Iceland for relaxation and skin pampering, not so much for ambiance.
    We only dipped into the medium temperature pool, the very hot pool was just a little too adventurers on a first visit. Soaking in a volcanic hot spring is to be recommended

    Gorgeous beach which is always washed by pretty strong waves, not recommending a long distance (or even mid-distance) swim, however if you're into surfing - it's a must stop! Black sand rocks (not during mid-day though as it's like lava). Overall, highly recommended!
