Ponta da Ferraria

Ponta da Ferraria is a lava delta located in the parish of the Ginetes, Ponta Delgada.

Ferraria is a place where hot water, heated by volcanic vapors, mixes with the cold water of the sea, in a small cove that forms a small natural pool. Visiting Ferraria and bathing in these warm waters is one of the highlights of any trip to São Miguel, but be aware of the tides. When the tide is full the hot water hardly feels it and when the tide is low, the water is too hot. So, if you go to Ferraria, plan your visit according to the tide, and pick up when the tide is going down or up.
