One of the most beautiful places on earth! You feel so relaxed and in touch with nature! Unfortunatly not many good choices in restaurants, but uf you want to be in touch with nature just picnic by the lake!

This is so a lovely place! Definitely a hidden gem of the Azores. There are beautiful natural thermal baths at different temperatures as well as a cool pool with flowing water. Change rooms, towels, baskets for your belongings & a gift shop. It's open almost every day & late too. It's a small parking lot but well worth the squeeze... More

We came here as part of a day trip touring the island. Very interesting and the lunch cooked underground and eaten in a local restaurant was a great experience.

The food cooked in the hot springs here are incredible. Best meal I ever had, we ate at tony's near by, they do all the work for you. The ground around the hotsprings with the lake and the church were also very pleasant. Would be a nice place to spend the afternoon.

When I asked my kids what their favorite place to visit in Sao Miguel, they quickly answered Furnas! First thing you see is a large scenic lake with a historic pretty old church in the distance. As you drive further you can start to see the clouds of steam coming from the geysers. Once you get into the parking lot... More

Not an incredible town to stroll around but we loved the small hot springs on the outskirts and walking round the botanical gardens, a great way to spend half a day.

I Love Furnas. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever layed eyes on. I will surely be going back so I can lay in the Geothermal Iron Springs all day long at Terra Nostre Parque. It is magickal and healing to just be breathing in the fresh air here. The people are friendly and helpful and... More

Furnas has more to do and see without the large city feel than anywhere else on the island. Take in the hot baths, see the Terra Nostra garden and orange pool, Eat corn cooked right in the scalding steam vents, and ensure you eat food cooked on the shores of Lagoa Furnas (cozido)

We loved Furnas and it probably is the one place that would tempt us to return to the Azores. We loved the hot springs – the Copper Pool in the Terra Nostra gardens and particularly the pools at the lovely Poca da Dona Beja - but we also really liked the extensive boiling and bubbling geysers and clouds of sulphur...
