From Funchal: Enchanted Terraces and Porto do Moniz
In the north-western tip of the island of Madeira, it is Porto Monitz, a small town very famous for its natural pools formed in the volcanic reefs.
These can be reached through paths and trails dotted with typical coffee and beautiful sights from which you can see all bodies of water from such a specialized nature shaped by erosion.
Very popular in the summer, these reservoirs whose water returns to the rhythm of the tides, are prolonged in concrete terraces where you can roll out mats and towels and enjoy the sun in total relaxation.
Out of season Porto Moniz also worth a visit for its spectacular rocky coast, where basalt was transformed into “lace” of stone from the surf and erosion. A truly breathtaking show.
