Parque Florestal do Mistério da Prainha

Parque Florestal do Mistério da Prainha
You will find the Forest Park in an area of the island of Pico known as Mistério da Prainha (Mystery of the Beach), due to a historic volcanic event that dates back to the years of 1562 and 1564. You can still see traces of the lava flow, slabs of compact rock, scoria and volcanic rock formations.

It is currently a leisure area with various recreational facilities such as a children?s playground, a multi-purpose sports park and a picnic area. A network of forest trails, ideal for those who enjoy walking, will lead you to the grassy area, Baía de Canas (Cane Bay), the Parque das Endémicas (the Park of the Native Species) and the viewing point, all revealing a vegetation that is composed essentially of pine-trees, fire-trees, hydrangeas and camellias.

Close to the entrance to the park, make sure to visit a traditional wine-cellar and take the opportunity to sample the typical wine of the island of Pico.
