#1 of 17 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. For Poca Da Dona Beija and beyond, use our Furnas online day trip planner to get the most from your Furnas vacation.

  • The best place for relax! Good service, polite employees. Some nice pools, not very big, but enough for relax!  more »
  • Brutal place to take 39° hot water baths in the various pools/spa. At first the full looks very strong but dp from there being about 15/20minutes nothing matters anymore and we just want to relax and enjoy the paradise site. Loved

  • Spend about an hour in these hot baths and enjoy an easy going afternoon. It's like a natural hot tub. It's natural high iron content will result in stains on your skin and light colored clothing. Recommended to wear dark colors and have clean skin before entering the pools. If you have oils (lotion, sunscreen, or natural skin oils) on your skin, you may leave the pools with orange rust all over your skin. Also, will easily transfer white or light colored bathing suits.
  • Stopped by here for an hour or so to check it out. Honestly, if you’re on the mood for a nice hot sauna-like experience, it is a must-visit spot. The naturally heated water is around 35-40 degrees Celsius and is such a nice relaxing experience after a long day of running around. Highly recommended.
