You will also see an orange river flowing through the entire Furnas area. The unique orange color is created from the high iron levels in the water. You can actually soak in the famous orange hot spring at Parque Terra Nostra.

Hot thermal springs where people can experience waters at different temperatures in different pools, from boiling hot to moderate lukewarm. Orange, red, yellow colors due to the natural presence of sulfur / sulphur from the active geothermal area.

At Pocas Da Dona Beija the tub’s temperatures vary, going from cold to hot. We enjoyed going back and forth between the different temperatures! 

These island of Sao Miguel hot springs are a must on any trip to Furnas Azores.

Pocas Da Dona Beija Hot Springs Hours

The hot springs are open from 7:00 am until 11:00 pm. It’s the perfect late-night activity. While it is nice that it is open late, keep in mind that it does attract a younger and more rowdy crowd in the evening. While it’s not a party destination, it is worth knowing that you definitely won’t have it to yourself.

If you’d prefer a quieter soak, aim to visit these hot springs early in the morning.

How much does it cost?

Entry costs €6 per person.

Overall, we loved our experience at the Poca Da Dona Beija and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Sao Miguel Island in the Azores. It was the perfect way to unwind after a busy day of travel.
