I visited in June with 2 friends during a weekend break. It is a beautiful place to visit. We went on a beautifully warm Sunday and it wasn't too busy - plenty of places to find a spot to set up 'camp' and have a...More

Very disappointing. No road signs whatsoever. Two car parks but no indication of how to get to it. Could hear the water flowing, but couldn't get to it. All paths seemed blocked. Maybe the locals didn't want us there! There were dozens of other people,...More

It is a little more tricky to find/get to since the walkways burned away a few years ago but it's worth the walk as is still so beautiful and gorgeous for a swim!

I read about the fire, but still decided to check out Pego do Inferno, because I was nearby. I was worth it - everything was green, water as running and few people swimming. The surroundings require some maintenance - cleaning the vegetation around the route,...More

It took us a while to find the right way to get there but it was worth the drive and walk. Everything was in bloom and it smelled like a magical place. We didn't go for a swim cause it was too cold, but it...More
