At the seaside in Ferraria, at Termas da Ferraria, there's a natural pool where hot water from underground mixes with cold water coming in from the sea, to create a natural hot water pool. Access to this pool is free, and there are showers and...More

Ropes in the outside pool (free access) not well maintained. Toilets dirty. Price for the spa area is 20€ per person, which is compared to other thermal experiences extremly high. The spa area did not make the best maintained impression from my point of view.

We only visited the ocean pool which was a great experience; happily whiled away an hour. Make sure you check the app so that you go when it's hot

The beautiful and serene view of this place is shadowed by the terrible service of the spa. Irrationally overpriced, we paid 150 euro to use an outdoor pool, which was so congested and full. The indoor facilities (jacuzzi and Turkish bath) were so badly maintained...More

How busy they are might depend upon the season. We were there mid afternoon in late March/early April. They were sold out of massage appointments for Sat so we made reservations for Sunday and even then the times we wanted... More
