My wife and I took the bus to Porto Moniz from Funchal and really enjoyed an afternoon here at the lava pools before our retun in the afternoon. The pools were pretty crowded, and everyone (families with small children, teenagers on the prowl, elderly tourists such as ourselves etc) were all having such a happy time. The facilities (pool and changing rooms) were clean, the location was spectacular, and as a very old chap, I paid but a Euro admission. By the way, I'm pretty sure that when we were there, there were very few other tourists: most were locals enjoying themselves at their own facility that would be the envy of any other local government. We didn't try the cafe at the pools: it didn't look great.
