Monte Brazil extends into the Atlantic off of Angra, giving it a stunning view back toward the charming little city with its colorful stucco buildings and red barrel tile roofs. It was a strenuous hike--lots of ups and downs--but a very well-trod path, and the...More

The views were spectacular and it’s a very enjoyable hike. There are many different trails, so avid hikers can explore as much as they want. It’s very close to the city and easy to access.

The view from the top here is spectacular. They offer hiking trails as well as travel by car. The only place with deer on the Island. Definitely worth a visit.
