Welcome to Lagoa da Conceição
For spectacular scenery, exhilarating water sports or all-night parties, Lagoa da Conceição is a popular alternative to the beaches. Forested hills form a fabulous backdrop for the pretty lagoon. The town of Lagoa, often packed with tourists, sits on a sandbar that divides the two halves of the lagoon and is the island's action-packed center.
Get off the beaten track by hiking along the lagoon’s undeveloped west coast. From the center of town, it is 6km to the tiny village of Costa da Lagoa, which is otherwise accessible only by boat.
