Cascada Salto del Cabrito is a stunning waterfall located in the Azores, a group of nine Portuguese islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Specifically, it is situated in the São Miguel Island, near the village of Faial da Terra, in the eastern part of the island.

The waterfall is part of a river that flows from the surrounding mountains and cascades down a series of rocky steps, forming multiple tiers of falls. The largest cascade is the Salto do Cabrito, which is about 25 meters high and 10 meters wide. The water that flows from the falls feeds a small stream that runs through a lush forest of endemic vegetation, creating a peaceful and serene atmosphere.

The area surrounding the waterfall is a popular spot for hiking, picnicking, and swimming. There are several walking trails in the region that lead to other nearby waterfalls, viewpoints, and natural pools. Visitors can also explore the nearby village of Faial da Terra, which is known for its traditional architecture, cobbled streets, and friendly locals.
