In the Porto Moniz area, visitors are treated to a unique aquatic experience with three natural swimming pools, complemented by the presence of a natural black sand beach. These pools are a marvel of nature, formed by volcanic rock formations that have been shaped over time.

The design of these pools allows the cool, fresh seawater from the Atlantic Ocean to flow in with each tide, creating a rejuvenating and invigorating swimming experience. This natural replenishment of water ensures a crisp and clean environment for bathers. It also offers a children’s pool, playground and access for the disabled.

For those who enjoy snorkelling, bringing along a mask can enhance the experience significantly. With the clarity of the water, it’s possible to observe small fish that inhabit these pools, swimming freely at the bottom and adding a touch of natural beauty to the experience. This opportunity to interact so closely with marine life in a natural setting makes the swimming pools in Porto Moniz a must-visit destination for nature lovers and water enthusiasts alike.
