Parque Florestal do Mistério da Prainha

Parque Florestal do Mistério da Prainha

Gardens, Parks and Forests

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 an historic volcanic event that dates back to 1562 and 1564. You can still see traces of the lava flow, slabs of compact rock, slag 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 Baía de Canas (Cane Bay) area, the Parque das Endémicas (the Park of the Native Species) and a viewpoint, all of which reveal a vegetation that is composed essentially of pine-trees, fire-trees, hydrangeas and camellias.

Be sure to visit a traditional wine-cellar close to the entrance to the park and take the opportunity to sample the typical Pico wine.
