The nearby forest is rich in fruit trees brought to the island from all over the world. This is an ideal apartment from which to explore the various hiking trails and one can find themselves in beautiful lush surroundings minutes from the door. It is also possible to hunt rabbit, chicken, pidgeon and quail. Whale watching can also be enjoyed from Madalena while other water related activites include swimming with dolphins and sport fishing..
Of course there is always the challenge of climbing to the summit of Pico.

Location description from owner

The Azores region

The Azores are a group of ilands about a thousand miles due west of Lisbon.A bit off the beaten track of the raving party going type
of tourist but ideal for the person who likes to relax and let the world go by.
Pico is in a sub group of five islands with Sao Jorge ,Fial,Graciosa and Terceira all linked by ferry
There was a whaling industry here in Lages Do Pico until Green Peace pulled the plug back in the eighties,now the buisness is taking the tourists
out to see the huge mammals up close.
Of course Pico the mountain 2351 mts. dominates the island and for anyone thats up to it a must to climb and to experience the
facinating view of the sunrise from the summit

Prainha de Baixo

Prainha is a farming and fishing area there are two well stocked shops two cafes a restuarant a pitzaria and bakery in the village,
There is a diving school and of course we have our beach hense Prainha there is also a rock pool and swimming area.
High season when the festas are on it can get a bit crowded for some, if its not your scene you can take the high road and look
down on it all and take in the magnificant panoramic view in the stillness and quiet broken only by birdsong
