We were unable to use the pools as it was too cold and windy but we did get some amazing seascape photos.

Beautiful pools on the north west shore of the island. Easy to get to by the highway. Water wasn't as cold as I thought it would be, but still cold in Nov. Nestled in a nice little town.

Very beautiful pools in a volcanic coastal setting. We just had time for a quick dip here. The water is a bit cool as it is the Atlantic supplying it. The changing rooms do not have locks, not sure if there are boxes somewhere.

We were so lucky to visit Porto Moniz in a sunny day when the ocean and the sky are bright blue! Honestly, I could not imagine how beautiful it could be! We came early afternoon and were hungry and ready to have lunch, but I could not even think about stopping for food and drinks before walking all around these... More

We went for a refreshing swim mid-morning and found it exhilarating. The 18c water was perfect to awaken our senses while letting our minds mix with crystal clear water, glimpses of tiny fish swimming about and the vast sky --surrounded by the volcanic rock.

A great place to swim, look at the views and experience the crashing of waves in the water in a safe environment. A must do activity.
