Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools, Porto Moniz

#3 of 8 in Nature in Madeira
A tropical paradise created by natural phenomena, Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools sit in the nonwestern section of Madeira near the small town of Porto Moniz. These volcanic pools, formed ages ago by lava flow meeting the waters of the Atlantic, attract swimmers from around the world with their natural layout and sweeping views of the ocean. The surrounding rocks reflect in the crystalline pools, creating an impression of an underwater world filled with craggy stone pillars. Try to time your visit for late afternoon or early evening, when the reflections of the setting sun blur the line between sky and water. Our Porto Moniz online trip builder makes visiting Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools and other Porto Moniz attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Ingenious natural swimming pool. 1.50 euro per person (adult) also a bargain! A visit is worthwhile in any case.

  • The Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools are really nice! It may not look so natural from the photos but it is actually almost all natural! There is also a diving board into the sea that is really cool....  more »
  • The natural swimming pool has pleased me very well. However, weather in Porto Moniz is often not that great, very windy and cloudy. What makes a very refreshing experience a dip in the pool. There are pools, the direct and connecting sea, where you quite wet is made by the one or the other shaft. Is it a springboard into the open sea. On-site, there are changing rooms, toilets, showers and a restaurant, which is performance by price quite alright. The entrance is very cheap with €1.50. Chairs or umbrellas can be hired for € 1.50 each again. Also, there is the possibility to leave the valuables, so you must worry about. The weather would be there more convenient, it would be a completely successful trip.
