Small pool, over-crowded and dirty... (plenty of cigarettes everywhere on the soil) Is that nature promoted by São Miguel ?

We UTV'd there and planned with the tour guide to go into the hot springs when the tide was low. Unique sensation to be in hot water while cold waves crash in. Keep a hold of the rope, especially if not a good swimmer
