Fajã Grande – Ponta Delgada Tour
Ideal time: 9.00 – 13.00
Departing from the bathing area of Fajã Grande we quickly arrive at Poço do Bacalhau, one of the reference places of Flores island, and the Azores in general. After that we go to Aldeia da Cuada, which was once a village full of people and is nowadays an exquisite tourist village. An obligatory passage point in the visit to Flores island is also the Poço da Ribeira do Ferreiro, which requires a short walk, but that surely will worth the effort. Almost without realizing it, we arrive to Portal viewpoint and, a little further ahead, to Craveiro Lopes, two unique points of view of the valley on which they stand, Fajã Grande, Cuada and Fajãzinha. In the viewpoint of Negra and Comprida Lakes we can admire the 180º view, perfect for a panoramic photograph. Then we continue the “circuit” for the remaining seven wonderful lakes, in the following sequence: Branca, Seca, Funda, Rasa and finally, Lagoa da Lomba. We leave to the end the one that is considered the masterpiece of the island, Rocha dos Bordões. This whole sequence will depend on the starting point. If the beginning is done at Santa Cruz the order will be the opposite.
