Geologic Formation
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.

  • It can rain and dogs and make cold outside it's fine because within those puddles to 39 C there's nothing that hurt us:) Super relaxing

  • Without great expectations, was a unique experience. The site is very well organized, with good conditions to enjoy the space. Being in the Pool Kiss and watch the evening was a fantastic moment.

  • 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.
