Holidays to Furnas
Furnas is a small civil parish that sits atop an active volcano on the island of Sao Miguel. Its precarious location means that it is surrounded by luscious fertile land and an array of natural hot springs and fumaroles for both locals and tourists to enjoy. The parish has a rich history filled with pirate attacks and agriculture; honey and wax are the main exports, but the local tea cannot be matched either.
Nicknamed ‘Fire Beach’, this long sandy stretch takes advantage of the hot springs below.
Praia da Amora
Only accessible by hiking, this quiet sandy beach is lined by a rocky shoreline, so is a great spot for swimming.
Nossa Senhora Da Paz
Climb the stairs on the hillside to see this fascinating historic temple with sweeping views.
Igreja Do Santo Cristo
Explore the interiors of this small but beautiful ornate church, with intricate paintings and golden ceilings.
Poca Da Dona Beija
Relax in these soothing springs, just one of the volcanic hot pools known for their theraputic properties.
Perfect for families, you can ride the waterslides or relax by the sea at this water park.
Furnas is famous for growing bright green tea leaves that are unique to Europe. Try some before you leave.
Meat and veg
The ingredients are put into a sac and buried in geothermal soil to cook naturally over 5 hours.
On the western seafront lies this art gallery/bar/club where memorable and unprecedented events take place.
Bom Bom Bilhares
A great place to relax after a day in the hot sun; play pool, enjoy the bar’s drinks and chat with friends.
