“Perfect and Beautiful”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

So picturesque. There's waterfalls and beautiful plant life. I stayed in Ponta Delgada and this alone was worth the drive out to Nordeste. There is a waterfall as soon as you drive up on an old road on the side of a mountain that you can follow the river down to see a couple mill houses, one that still works. Perfect spot for all ages, there's things to see and do for everyone.

“picturesque”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

a picturesque park on the way from Ribeira Grande to Nordeste. Walk down through all of the abandoned water mills, have a BBQ by the waterfall (bring your own food). Worth about 45 min - 1 hour unless you are staying for a picnic.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

This is one of the nicest spots on Sao Miguel. A picturesque water fall feeds water into the rest of the facilities that were carefully built around the area to blend in with nature.

Its a very nice spot to stop and have lunch before proceeding to the rest of the Nordeste region

“So where is the 6th star..?”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

Heaven on Earth. Visited at daytime. So peaceful and quiet. Fresh air, birds, sound of water.
My guide took me there next evening, ´cos he said, it´s mezmerising in the dark when spotlights are turned on. But, it was dark thet night. When the eye got used to the darkness, the park is still paradise.. even more quiet. Absolutely stunning. Travellers, don´t miss the Paradise.
