Discover The natural swimming pools of Porto Moniz Portugal

At the north-western tip of Madeira, Porto Moniz is renowned for its natural swimming pools formed in the volcanic reefs. Much sought after in summer, these pools filled with water renewed by the successive tides are flanked by cement terraces where you can lay out a towel. In the off-season, Porto Moniz also deserves a stopover due to its spectacular rocky coast whose basalt has been transformed into a stone filigree by the backwash and erosion.
