  Porto Moniz pools: night-time
by pikuu

This place was described many times. And undouptedly is worth of visiting. Not only crystal and warm water but also picturesque landscape of lava islets and ocean waves are outstanding attractions.

My practice observations: in Septemeber swimming was allowed only up to 1 or 2 pm. After this time pools were flooded by the waves from ocean. And 'nadadores salvadores' (simply life-guard) hung the red flag out. During afternnoon time I don't recommend to take place near the pools edge - for sure waves will wet all your stuff.

Normal ticket (2006) is 1,25 euro. Pools are full equiped: restaurant, wc, changing rooms, baggage room, showers, sunbeds etc. One minus is that you have to put you towel on concrete ground (or on sunbed for additional charge).

On the photo you can see pools and their sea surroundings at the night-time. Camera time shutter was about 1 sec and different lights (street lamps, fluorescent light) created these colors.
