There are two very different sides to Madeira. Most visitors never venture outside of Funchal, the island’s lively, bustling capital. The small hamlet of Porto Moniz is the opposite – peaceful, quiet and relaxing: it’s the real Madeira that most tourists never see.
Tucked-away in the north-west corner of the island, surrounded by the steep volcanic cliffs which characterise the north coast, the ‘port town of Moniz’ is famous amongst islanders. It’s seawater pools are some of the best swimming spots of the island – where the ocean has naturally sculpted pools from the volcanic rock and the Madeiran’s have added a few final mand-made touches. In a nutshell: it’s sun, sea and swimming for a week – and we’ll include a hire car so you can explore this unassuming and beautiful corner of Madeira.
