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!
I am an anthropologist of religion and photographer, currently living in Pretoria, South Africa. I wrote my PhD-thesis on narratives about Satanism in Zambia. Currently I am preparing a new research project that uses photography as an ethnographic method. In my free time, I love hiking, safaris and enjoying nature through photography.

So beautiful! But: do all people like to swim there in Jan, or mainly just Dutch, Germans, and other people from cold climates? 😉
Ha! You may be on to something there…
