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.

  • Excellent natural hot water pools. Very good for relax. Hotspot in Furnas. The return.

  • Wonderful island and its people, an island for large walks a safe, spectacular landscape that we will return to the archipelago of the Azores

  • It is an enchanted place, surrounded by lush greenery and with several pools, to different temperatures (from 28 to 38 degrees). I got sore (for long walks to Shreedhar made before arriving in the Azores) but a few hours in this magical place I was put back on track. Price not low compared to other spas on the island, but a place to see.

  • 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.
  • For a 3 or 5 euro (I forget which) entry fee, you gain access to 5 thermal pools. 4 of them seem to be the same temperature (I would guess around 100 degrees F) and the 5th was cooler. They have towel rentals as well. The pools aren't very big, but since we went in November it wasn't too crowded. I would guess that in the summer months it would become much busier and a little harder to relax. I wore a darker pair of boardshorts and rinsed them off after getting out of the pools, so I didn't have any issues with staining from the iron in the water, but I wouldn't recommend wearing anything white or light colored just in case.
  • take 1.5 hours to relax in the water of the hot springs. generally visited by locals not by tourists. less expensive at 3 euros vs 6 euros for the bigger thermal baths in Furnas
  • Had an amazing experience here! At the end of a long day of hiking coming here to take a relaxing bath in the hot springs is the way to go.
  • After a hike around lake Furnas these thermal pools are a great way to relax.
