Before you reach Porto Moniz Village you'll find another really picturesque village known as Seixal. There's a black sand beach with really good conditions. Worth visiting!
Wear sandals on the black sand beach because dark colors absorb heat, making
this sand hotter than at a normal beach. Also, lay a pallet beneath your beach
towel so the black sand won't soil it
A small islet in Porto Moniz was used to install the lighthouse. It is called "Mole" which means soft, but I can´t understand the name - the look is so hard as everything else in the area.
Walking in Porto Moniz is always a pleasure. Nice cafes with ocean view and well kept gardens will welcome you.
The natural spas
The natural spas of Porto Moniz attract tourist of all the island. The water in the Summer reaches 23Cº. Good seafood restaurants offer fresh choices on the menu.
The northern sea
The sea in the village of Porto Moniz is very rough. It is possible to see waves that sometimes reach 10 meters in height. It is a fantastic scenery! Sometimes it's dangerous. Take care!
