We visited here as part of a day long tour with Pedro from Azores Tours. The decks were under construction , but the bath/changing rooms were available and very clean. We did not take a dip, but did check out the different pool temperatures. Cute lttle gift shop here!

Great thermal waters - several pools with different temperatures. The waters were high in iron, made your skin feel great...but it took a few washings to get the iron our of our swimsuits. They kept the beautiful natural landscaping. They are in process of constructing 2 additional pools.

Visiting the pools of Poca Da Dona Beija was the perfect way for me to unwind on vacation and really appreciate the natural beauty of Sao Miguel. Beyond the visceral pleasure of a hot soak in a natural geothermal pool, the tranquility of Poca Da Dona Beija's secluded island locale facilitated thoughts of peace and serenity...of enduring time, and the...

Poca Da Dona Beija must not be missed when visiting Furnas! The property has a number of pools to choose from, which allows you to select the just the right temperature and keeps the environment intimate and never over-crowded. Staff are friendly and grounds are not only clean but beautiful! The hot springs are open most of the day, but... More

110F pools. Nice changing area with cold showers. Pretty! Definitely worth a visit for a dip. Centrally located in the village.

The Poca was undergoing some construction, but that didn't detract from our experience. The changing rooms were nice, and even though it seemed chilly, it was a comfortable walk to the pools. There are two of different depths and they perch above the stream with the water spilling off the side like small cobbled infinity pools. The orange color from... More

Admission is cheap, only a few Euros each, the staff is friendly and attentive and the baths are amazing. The place is beautiful and well maintained. The security is diligent about watching your stuff so you don't feel uncomfortable leaving it unattended while you're soaking. Towels are provided with the price of admission.

A very enjoyable destination. The comments of recent reviewers are accurate-this is a well cared for resource with 2 hot pools (one deeper than the other) at the temperature of a warm bath. The price, 2 euros, is minimal. Towels can be hired for a further 2 euros. We spent a very happy 90 minutes or so soaking in the... More
