  • A little difficult to find, follow the signs leading you to the natural hot springs. The last stage is down a steep hill with switch back turns. Not difficult, just steep. A beautiful restaurant with ...  more »
  • Site with a descent something vertiginous, where he will give a building of blacksmithing, Spa with indoor and outdoor heated spa naturally, however the ex libris is after a gangway leading up to a natural pool formed in volcanic region rock in the sea, where the water is heated by the volcanic region activity. the site has ladders and ropes to if you can swim safely, due to swell and open waters. I was sorry for not try just wet your hands to check the temperature of the water, but the winds were almost cyclonic on this day and there wasn't a soul in this place. There is by the pool an infrastructure of support, with a toilet, however on this day is closed, it seemed open only in high season.

  • When we couldn't dive but gave to imagine. Very nice place with volcanic spotlessly clean. Worth the descent.

  • Experience depends on the hour of your visit. At midday it was high tide and we could enjoy the power of the ocean. With low tide it's obviously more relaxing place and enjoying warm-cold water difference.
  • A natural pool that mixes hot thermal water with the cold seawater. Awesome place to swim. And you have a fantastic view!
  • This is a great place to feel the heat of a thermal pool in the actual ocean. It is best to go when it's low tide so the water will be hot.
  • The volcanic wave pool is a must-do activity on Sao Miguel! Not for the faint hearted, but well worth the effort. Best time to visit is between low and high tide - at low tide it's too hot, at high tide you barely feel the warmth and the waves can be very strong.
  • I have not been there to swim at the facilities but on the other side I have been there photographing the seaside which I can recommend to everyone. Also seem to be quite popular with local fisherman, fishing off the cliffs.
