Very different and interesting place to visit. We were bathing and also walking around the cliffs, the thermal water merges with the ocean. So amazing, different and unique and everything for free.

I did not bath but the view was amazing. The water seemed nice an de it was booming of people. The drive down the hill was a bit scary but oh so worth it. Will definitely give it a try at my next visit.

The view, the nature, the volcanic trail, and the sea and definitely a must see. The Ferrarias natural pool is hard to get in, there are too much people, the sea current is too strong, you should wear water shoes (the rocks inside the water are sharp), always hold to the ropes that are in the water, so you go when the tide is low. So it is just for people that are not nervous or scared and can in the end relax.
We tried to go twice, gave up the first time, because there were too many people, a big crown. And this was in very low (if not empty) tourist season with the COVID-19 pandemic. The second time, it was 9:00 in the morning on a Tuesday, and there were already 10 people there. We went in, the water was not that warm because the sea waves were coming into the pool (although in low tide). Still it is a rare monument of nature, that you should visit.

Great place to go, you can experience low and high tie with different water temperatures. Take snorkeling gear, you will see a lot of fishes

We visited here in late far on, so most people were leaving. The water was still warm and we managed to get a bite to eat at the local restaurant there.

I arrived at Ponta da Ferraria at about 3.30pm on a Friday afternoon, and found that the water was cold and the waves were choppy. It's a pretty unique experience to stand in a pool at the bottom of a cliff clutching a rope whilst getting battered by waves, but not exactly the relaxing thermal pools I'd imagined! Probably best checking to see when low tide is (which is when the pools are warmest) and timing your visit accordingly.

Great views, larval arch...hot spring in the ocean!
The sun set here was beautiful, the water was not warm this time of year, and it was high tide.

Looking back, we remember this experience so fondly. The warm and cold seawater swirling together. The slight danger of the strong currents. The feelings of being part of the crowd. We are so happy we did this. It was on our top 3 experiences in the Azores!

Its not for pampered people, and its little dangerous, when tide is coming, but ist great! Here is free place to change to swimsuit, and cold shower. Its not for children, because here are rocks and waves.
Here is a good restaurant too. We take big burgers for 6 and 8€ and its really good. They have nice staff and clean, good looking premises.

Our Family headed to Ferraria to experience the natural hot springs in the ocean. We went at low tide early in the morning. Not all of us went in, but those that did loved the experience. So fun to watch those in the water. The water was only warmish, not hot due to the big waves coming in from the ocean. Certainly worth going to experience this natural wonder!
