Poca Da Dona Beija, Furnas

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • A well executed modern take on the classic relaxation spa. Time is easily forgotten when soaking in any one of the shallow pools that channel the water flow down hill. Lush greenery provides privacy w...  more »
  • Go one afternoon (late afternoon) even if the time seem more wild. It's one of the best experiences you can have in San Miguel, and is the best place to relax. I walked away with new forces, and makes some 10 years younger (minimum). MANDATORY STOP. Is the same as going to Rome and not seeing the Pope.

  • 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.
