Content: Even though we had started our trip, we were already exhausted. As we had a stopover in Lisbonne the day before, and we didn't get any sleep 🙈😴 To be honest, we didn't plan anything, as it was a last-minute trip. We just knew that we wanted to visit Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo, a hot spring, and the Ponta do Sossego viewpoint. In the meantime, we wanted to enjoy the view and stopped wherever we liked it.

Content: I highly recommend you, to rent a car, if you want to visit this beautiful island. Firstly it will give the flexibility, you can move wherever you want, secondly the public transport aren't very practical (they just stop in main cities) 🙃

There is a barbecue and a swimming pool 🏊‍♂️, unfortunately we couldn't benefit from it due to the weather 😑. You have a parking spot in front of the house. And the most important, extremely kind host with tips for eating, activities, and always disponible. If you are traveling during winter or spring, don't forget to bring a sweater. It's colder ❄️🧣 inside than outside 🌞.

Content: Time to eat something... As it was pretty late, we stopped at the first restaurant we saw. If I knew at that time, I wouldn't have chosen this restaurant. Not because it wasn't good, but because it was more a fast-food restaurant 🍔🌭 (not my favorite food)🙈🙊

We hadn't this chance, in fact we got wet but because of the rain ☔️😅. Apparently, the waters of Ferraria are used to treat some diseases such as rheumatism, nephritis, and other problems.

Content: We planned to finish our day in relaxing mode 😎 😌. But we had to change our plans 🙈. In fact, the famous hot spring 'Terra Nostra' was already closed. Be sure to check the schedule time if you don't want to happen to you either 😅. Then we found another hot spring not far from here, but there were a lot of people waiting outside to get in (the first Covid months 😪).

Content: First stop of the day 😊 Only 15 minutes from our house, there is this beautiful hot spring 😍 . Unfortunately, we didn’t have our swimsuit with us 😕. However we bought a visit ticket to see how it looks like. I can tell you is paradise on earth. This little swimming pool's surrounded by all this nature. Plus the clear water, the sound of brinds singing, the waterfall. It is magical.

Content: You can reach this waterfall by car or on foot. However if you have a small car, I don’t recommend you go down with it. You can park your car right before the descent ( it is a 15 - to 20 minute walks) Bring your swimsuit with you to take some pictures 📸. Well, if you don’t mind to swim in freezing water 🥶😅.

Content: In the beginning, we were quite apprehensive. From outside, the restaurant doesn’t look WOW, then we realized that it was empty (it’s probably because we went on a low season 🤷🏼‍♀️). We actually stopped here because of the view. Finally the food was deliciouuuusss, it’s true we had to wait a bit but it was worth it. Although the service could be better.

Content: For our last day in São Miguel, we decided to relax. So we went to this hot spring. So good to be true. The water was at the right temperature. We were so relaxed and lazy after 2 hours 😂😂. Why this one and not the famous ‘Terra Nostra hot spring’ ? Well the main reason is because of the color of the water but also because we loved here when we first visit. Plus, it was the nearest one 🏠.
