Category: Beaches and Pools

This category contains all of our posts about beaches and pools on Madeira Island.  Madeira features few, but very nice, black sand beaches.  Madeira also offers many sea-side open air pools in heavenly settings. Most often these are freely accessible or for a small fee.   Ambitiously, we intend to eventually cover all of them!  This category also has a general practical guide to all of Madeira’s ocean-side bathing spots.  But we’ll also do a detailed blog on the places we love  most.  One of them is the beach of Seixal.   You will also find posts about some of the famous lava pools, like the ones from Porto Moniz.
