Take a break from your tour of Sao Miguel with a relaxing swim at Poca Da Dona Beija, a small spa featuring three natural pools of iron-rich water known for its therapeutic properties. Fed by a series of hot springs, the small pools remain at about 39 C (102 F), an ideal temperature for soothing tense muscles and easing pains associated with chronic rheumatism. On-site facilities include restrooms, showers, and changing rooms, as well as a small gift shop selling handmade jewelry. Keep in mind that the yellowish water can leave stains on your clothes, so wear an old bathing suit for your swim.

  • The location is spectacular and is super well treated. The water is 39 ° and is super relaxing. Despite the influent of person it is easy to stretch a towel and enjoy to rest. I advise you to bring towel because on site it costs €2 but has a security deposit of €20

  • Lovely warm baths in a beautiful setting. The baths are thus a 39 degrees warm. Entrance fee is 6 euros per person. Parking is difficult, there is little parkeergelegnheid we have parked the car in the street before.

  • Hot baths (+39C) with different depths. One pool was colder (+28C, so not too cold) and it was very nice refreshment between the hotter pools. Some of the pools also had small waterfalls, that massage shoulders very nicely. Make sure to put on a darker color or old swimsuit, since the iron in the water can turn lighter fabrics red.The showers cost extra, but I think there's no need for that after the bath. You can rent towels there, and rent a safety locker for your stuff if you don't want to bring everything to the pools in a basket. This place is a good place for friends or couples, I would not bring children here.
  • Super friendly staff, made me feel all tingly. The pools filled me with warmth and pleasure. Extremely nice security guard. I hope your shift till 7am wasn't too hard!
