Cascata da Ribeira Quente

Cascata da Ribeira QuenteCascata da Ribeira Quente is a nice single drop waterfall near the village of Ribeira Quente on the Island Sao Miguel (Azores), Portugal.

Cascata da Ribeira Quente is located near the Ribeira Quente’s tunnel when driving from Furnas to Ribeira Quente (road EN2-2a). Park the car somewhere outside the tunnel and walk back to the waterfall. 

The picture is taken from the car, in the tunnel, during some heavy rainfall by my colleague Joelle Jutte. The rain shower was to heavy to walk to the base of waterfall.

Cascata da Ribeira Quente is visible from the middle of the tunnel. You can walk towards the waterfall that has a thermal source.

    Unfortunately there’s no parking place around this beautiful waterfall and the road isn’t safe enough to park for a longer time. So park safe further away and prepare for the longer hike. Don’t forget to bring your drinks, food and bathingclothes. They told me it’s a good place to enjoy a thermal fall and have a picknick.
