On this part of the trail you can observe the following: on your right-hand side Caldeira Seca and Sete Cidades lakes and on your left-hand side the western coast of S. Miguel island. Follow this unpaved track until you reach a tarmacked road that links Mosteiros to Sete Cidades. Go to the right and descend as far as you have an unpaved track on your left.

Very diverse walk along the shores of Varzea and Mosteiros up to the viewpoint to Sete Cidades. You will see the magnificent rocks and have a beautiful view on the ocean and Sete Cidades. The walk is mostly on good (farm)roads with some steep descents as well as ascents. Nothing to be afraid of however. Best enjoyed on a sunny day but during mist it is equally fun but without the views!Show more
