Natural Swimming Pools

Local namePiscinas Naturais do Porto Moniz
LocationPorto Moniz, Portugal

Composed of volcanic rocks, these lava pools are supplied naturally with crystal clear sea water and allow you to enjoy safe and convenient swimming while watching the ocean waves crash against the rocks protecting the pools.

There are cement terraces around the pools with beach umbrellas and sun loungers. The complex also has showers, changing rooms, locker rooms, and restaurants and cafés.

It makes for a nice day trip from Funchal - bus nr. 139 (Rodoeste Line) goes there daily in the morning and takes you through the middle of the island with a short stop at Cabo Girão and in São Vicente, allowing you to enjoy some wonderful views and scenery. On your way back, you can take the bus no. 80 which goes around the west coast of the island.
