Poca Da Dona Beija, Furnas
(4.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Take a break from your tour of Sao Miguel with a relaxing swim at Poca Da Dona Beija, a small spa featuring three natural pools of iron-rich water known for its therapeutic properties. Fed by a series of hot springs, the small pools remain at about 39 C (102 F), an ideal temperature for soothing tense muscles and easing pains associated with chronic rheumatism. On-site facilities include restrooms, showers, and changing rooms, as well as a small gift shop selling handmade jewelry. Keep in mind that the yellowish water can leave stains on your clothes, so wear an old bathing suit for your swim.

  • The best part of the island was left to the end. In particular of winter and night. One evening in December where in mainland Portugal to fight the cold here the heat is the forte da casa. With a renewal of image where it is recent, this set of swimming pools is an ideal place to enjoy with family or for couples. Water heated by volcanic heat and at night very nice environment. It's an experience that's worth it. The cost is 4euros per person. I just wish there was service of coffee or snack bar inside. Great experience in this 3-day trip to the island, being the part of Melhem trip! It is recommended that the visit to be made at night.

  • I visited the puddle of Mrs. Kiss had night. Great for day or night cold the water is warm and the atmosphere is nice. 1 euro hot shower 5 minutes, 1 euro locker having a deposit of 20 euros. There are some free baskets where we can put our clothes and then lay beside the pool where we are (for our own risk). but the place is super cool.

  • Very well presented hot river bathing location. Everything is immaculate, with facilities this good other reviewers complaints on the cost of entry seem a little harsh. The place feels safe, clean and staff are friendly. Gift shop is also of a high quality with classy local souvenirs at reasonable prices.
  • Amazing natural hot springs bathing pools. Very relaxing and therapeutic for an extemely affordable price. Highly recommended after a long day of site seeing.
  • Very cool place with natural 39 degrees water. The place is nice and cosy. Maybe 6€ is too much for the offering but still, a very nice place to spend a couple of hours. PS:don't forget to use disposable trunks...the sulfur will ruin your shorts.
  • Great place to spend an afternoon relaxing altough prices are steep... You even pay to take a simple shower. Very clean and staff is on the friendly side could be better staff wise...
  • Warm thermal baths in nature. The entry is 4€ and you can stay as long as you like in this wonderful place. Highly recommended after a long trail near Furnas.
