All reviews changing rooms thermal pools hot springs off season lush vegetation cold water information centre national park bit crowded lower pool parking is limited beautiful surroundings small size bring flip flops hot spring experience nice set paid euros
We visited this place in November, during the off-season, but there were still a lot of people there. The hot water pools were even a bit crowded, so we skipped those. The trail to the top of the waterfall was closed too, because the slopes...More
This could be 5 stars but i give 4 star because the price is a bit high, and after we bath we would like to take a shower but with cold water no way! The thermal waters and the surrounding park are just amazing
We paid our 8 euros per adult (it's cheaper if you don't bathe), and the very informative attendant told us there were 2 sets of pools and lockers available. The first set of pools are much warmer and were busier, but not too crowded. The...More
After paying a few euros you walk a couple hundred metres to the hot spring pools. Lovely nature and pools but we were there in the middle of the day on a Sunday so it was busy. If I were to return I'd go at...More
Family visit and paid 8 Euros each for the bathing - which is all it is really plus a very interesting display and explanation of the Azores history and nature.
There are nice changing facilities to get into bathing suits at each main pool.
We stopped here but didn't go in but I wanted to write this review because I was so disappointed. From some travel blogs this was supposed to be a wonderful place.. "mystical" and such words used. However, 3 tour buses and no less than 50...More
Unfortunately the weather was not quite perfect during our stay in São Miguel so we had to find alternatives to the hikes we had actually planned. We visited three thermal pools and rank them in this order:

2. Poça da Dona Beija...More

Hi! You will definitely love the Azores if you are into fantastic sunning scenery, friendly people and unique attractions. It could reach 71 degrees, but be prepared for some rain - in fact the Azores is known for having 4 seasons in a day! As far as I know, the Caldeira Velha is open every day. You will be visiting at the end of the dry / main tourist season, but will find that most 'attractions' are still open. I say 'attractions' because I feel The Azores is mainly for those who love nature, water sports and food! You won't find Theme Parks and specific activities for children - or at least I didn't. Whale and dolphin watching is a must. I would strongly recommend that you take a couple of guided van tours - that way you will see all that The Azores has to offer and learn so much. Pedro from Belazorica Azores Tours will not let you down - small group tours to all parts of the island. Enjoy!
