It’s not just us saying, it’s CNN. Porto Moniz in Madeira is one of the World’s best tidal and oceanside pools.
Because “the salty baths have been developed to make access easy, with steps down into the water and footpaths built around the perimeter” CNN Travel lists Porto Moniz in the 1st place.
The “beautiful spots by the coast offer the chance for a perfect summer dip without the need to keep an eye out for kayakers and kite-boarders”, according to CNN. As they are filled naturally with seawater at high tide, this oceanside pool is a place where you can enjoy clear and blue waters, a giant swimming area, kids’ pool, and sunbathing facilities.
But if we could just add something, it would be the Aquarium showcasing Atlantic Life. Definitely, a “must do” on our travel list.
