You should definitely climb to the crater of a volcano. Time turned the craters of extinct volcanoes into beautiful lakes, which are also one of the major local attractions. Divers should not forget to visit Pico Island – one of the most beautiful places to dive. On the island of San Miguel are organized exciting jeep safaris for tourists. During such ride you will be able to experience full diversity and contrast of local landscapes. Large forests are replaced with semi-arid zones and gloomy volcanic landscapes, and the coast is an interesting place where sand is mixed with huge layers of lava.
Flores Island is a perfect place for fans of secluded rest. There are also seven great lakes on the territory of the island. The largest one is called Funda. You will find an excellent sandy beach at its shore. Sunbathing is possible from April to September. In autumn and winter all the lakes of the island are tightened with fog. The local beach is a perfect choice for family holidays. That place will be also liked by those who want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. Such lakes as Branca, Comprida, Seca, Lomba, Rasa and Funda das Lajes are also perfectly suited for secluded rest, but there are no large beaches of these lakes.
