"Porto Moniz" Porto Moniz by myriam_c

Porto Moniz Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 84 photos

Porto Moniz is a seaside resort on the northwest tip of the island. The view from one of the miradouro's (observation points) is spectacular. The valley down under looks like a patchwork quilt: many small parcels of arable land, all surrounded by bushes to protect the plants from the Atlantic winds, downpours (we experienced one!) and the seawater.

The coastline between Porto Moniz and Seixal is truly spectacular, with high cliffs, waterfalls, terraces with vineyards, etc.

Like everywhere else on the island, there's no beach in Porto Moniz but the resort has some natural swimming pools with crystalclear water in the lava rocks.
The rocky coast is spectacular and the small rocky islands, the ilhéus, are very picturesque.
