Madeira 5: Porto Moniz

Porto Moniz is a town on the northwest coast of Madeira. Coming from the mountains, the view down on the town is stunning. Via a road with many hairpin turns (under Mary’s watchful gaze), you arrive in the town at sea level. Very special is the seawater basin in which you can swim even in January!

  1. So beautiful! But: do all people like to swim there in Jan, or mainly just Dutch, Germans, and other people from cold climates? 😉
