What You Can Expect
The hot springs are much appreciated and frequented by locals. The groundwater in contact with the rock is subjected to high temperatures and gradually reaches the surface at an average temperature of 39 degrees Celsius (102 degrees Fahrenheit).
Violet Volcanic Tea: When green tea meets water from the Azores’ hot springs, an unexpectedly colorful brew is born. The brew’s color is due to a chemical reaction between the antioxidants in the tea and unoxidized iron in the spring water, which makes the resulting mixture refract light to a luminous purple. The flavor is earthy, with clay-like notes.
What to Bring
• Wear light shoes in the summer and hiking boots in the winter;
• Towels, swimsuits and slippers are recommended for the hot springs;
• It is strongly recommended that you do not wear white shorts or swim suits;
• Dress in layers as temperatures can change quickly. Bring a light sweater or jacket in the cooler months of November through March.
