Fire & Sea: Wake Up At The Volcano


Lagoa do Fogo is located in the caldera of the Fogo volcano and is the second largest lagoon on the island of São Miguel. Due to the few interventions, its fauna and flora are still wild and for that reason, Lagoa do Fogo is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Portugal in Wild Beaches category. It is an important pond for the region due to the supply of drinking water and a visiting postcard from São Miguel. But it is through paths of land that we feel its essence. Not only by the walking trail starting in Água D’Alto, but for all its fauna and flora along the trail. If just watching the lake is an outstanding experience, imagine the pure smell of a new day, seeing the sunrise while fishing in a relaxed way. To complete this extraordinary experience, nothing better than a sea bath in Ponta da Galera, where you can also, if you want, snorkel and finally try the fresh fish of the Azores at the Caloura Bar.
