Pico do Carvão Viewpoint (Miradouro do Pico do Carvão)
The Pico do Carvao viewpoint is a popular lookout spot on Sao Miguel, the largest island of the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores. Travelers will find panoramic views of both the northern and southern coasts of the island, including a string of volcanic cones that run from Ponta Delgada to Ribeira Grande.

Standing just over 2,600 feet high (800 meters high), Pico do Carvao also provides splendid views out to the Atlantic Ocean, as well as of several surrounding lakes, including Lake Carvao, Lake Canario and Lake Rasa. The area is quite green and flush with Japanese cedars and tree ferns and is often visited on day trips from Ponta Delgada.

Practical Info

Nonstop flights from Lisbon to Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel run four to seven times each day. From the airport, it is about a 20-minute drive to Pico do Carvao. This site is also often visited as part of a guided tour around the island.
Address: Pico do Carvão, Ponta Delgada, Portugal
