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.

  • Landmark not to be missed. Although not find reasonable price 4 € (children have discount 50 cents only!) and have to leave a deposit exaggerated by a locker key is worth the visit. We tried the heated pools is something else even more on a rainy day.

  • I recommend you visit, especially in the evening, a nice hot water, but you cannot sit for long, or rather should not be. I've been there twice, each time there was a lot of people, this is the only minus.

  • We are advised by a local evening gone, what was very pleasant! Enjoy hot water and the stars. Though not really distinguish between the pools on heat. But definitely recommended!

  • 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.
