This collection of thermal pools is a good place to pass the time and relax. There are various pools of varying temperatures, some with massaging waterfalls, so you can find one to suit you. Entrance is only 3 euros and you can stay as long as like, even up until 11pm. Just make sure you have a dark-coloured swimsuit and... More

This is a fantastic place to enjoy, specially in a colder or rainy day. These warm pools are perfect for a relaxing end of a day.

One of the best places we visited on the Island! Wonderful hot springs. Calm and relaxing atmosphere. Did not want to leave!! Come early, since parking is limited. It costs only 3 euros per person and you can rent towels for 2 euros (returnable deposit). It has a gift shop, restrooms, showers and changing rooms. All well maintained and clean.... More

This is a beautiful spot to visit, and not as rustic as Caldiera Velha. You can rent towels for €2 plus a returnable deposit, change rooms are free, showers are €1 for 5min. Clean facilities, and a really calm atmosphere. The pools near the top are cooler than the ones near the entrance. Park in their small lot, or along... More

We tried two different hot springs locations and returned to this one because it was so nicely kept, beautifully landscaped and comfortable to enjoy. They have really worked to create a soothing atmosphere and they have all the amenities.

Great place to relax. Better than Nostra Terra because of many different baths instead of one big one. And it costs only 3 euros per person. We went whilst it was raining outside and it was amazing.

It only costs 3 euros and wasn't very crowded except a few people here and there. It is a very refreshing experience and superb use of natural springs to bring tourism. There's changing rooms and a shop that sells bathing costumes and towels in case you forgot to bring your own and don't want to miss out on the experience.... More

Sadly my husband and I went here and had a really negative experience. We were really looking forward to the funas hot springs but we never even set foot in the water. We paid to go inside, but once inside we realized that the pools were all filled to obvious capacity (basically skin to skin people with no room for... More
