Poca Da Dona Beija, Furnas

4.7
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Furnas
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.

  • Cannot stop visiting. If there is no visit to the Azores, is this. Calm, orderly, safe and several tanks. Bring a bathing suit, to be cheaper. There are changing rooms simple but effective. Cost: 4 €/pessoa

  • They are very nice and I I'm going with a friend who has problems in the leg wants to go every afternoon because it says coming out and go you great is very happy and now wants to go every quarter to not go more

  • Natural swimming pools (supposedly) between 28° and 39°. Admission is 4 EUR. Take a shower of warm water costs 1 eur. Rent a towel costs eur 2. Consider a cheap experience. In any part of the world a place like this would pay more ... It is worth to continue into the night making the different experience.

  • This was the best place to chill after a link day of walking, driving and exploring the island. And while you are there visit the gift shop. The souvenirs there are made by the people at the store. I bought a beautiful dragon fly necklace with a lava rock on it.
  • The place was nice and relaxing. They have 4 pools that are the same temperature but at different depths. It never got too crowded for the two of us. They have change rooms and rental lockers for $1 Euro.
  • Great place to experience hot springs. Clean, busy but try at lunchtime and it's much quieter. Friendly staff and easy to access 5 separate hot spring pools. Nothing too hot and fabulously landscaped surroundings. Almost thought we were in Japan given the surroundings and quality of the resort.
  • Awesome place! It's great value if you're interested in doing some relaxing in termal springs, it's the best place. The layout is beautiful and the pools are all different. The atmosphere is perfect to kickback and relax
  • We enjoyed our experience here! Definitely something we'd recommend doing if you are exploring the city.
