    Located directly on the sea and usually with great sea water swimming pool. Sometimes it has a bit higher waves like in the photos

    Porto Moniz is a small and pretty town on the northwestern tip of the island. Known for its natural volcanic pools, it is popular with locals and tourists alike in summer. Porto Moniz has the safest harbor on the north coast of the island.
