The crater of an old underwater volcano is the biggest attraction of the council, classified natural reserve. Situated in front of Vila Franca do Campo village, this crater is filled with vegetation. Inside the crater lays a perfectly circular natural pool, connected to the sea through a narrow passage, where you can swim and dive. Its rocks were curiously eroded by the sea and the winds, especially one rock that resembles an Antiquity sculpted column. In the high season, it is one of the biggest attractions of the south coast of São Miguel island. In the months of June to September, there is a regular boat service from Vila Franca do Campo to the islet.
