Nature & Geology
The volcanic origins of the islands can truly be seen at the natural pools of Rosário, Lagoa. The black lava surrounding the blue ocean creates a beautiful contrast in the landscape. It is a place of choice for many locals to spend some time with the sound of the waves around.
There is no better place to truly understand volcanoes than the Volcanological and Geothermal observatory of the Azores in Lagoa. Appreciate Mother Nature’s work at this museum very explanatory about the geological features of the island.
On the nature level, Lagoa has many heavenly beaches to enjoy, such as Praia da Baixa D’Areia in Água de Pau. The thin black sand is just perfect to lie down and have a daily intake of Vitamin D.
