This peninsula of volcanic origin is formed by the islets of Cevada, or Desembarcadouros, and Ponta de São Lourenço. It is the site of the Madeira Natural Park and its fauna includes one of the world's largest colonies of yellow-legged gulls.
You'll love the beautiful island of Porto Santo. It is cosy and very safe, with beautiful beaches of fine golden sand, islets of many shapes, unspoiled mountains and a calm turquoise-blue sea. It breathes peace and well-being.
Known as "the most beautiful region in the north", Seixal deserves a special mention.
It has a large beach of black sand and natural swimming pools in an idyllic setting of amazing volcanic rock and lush mountains. There is a calm, comfortable atmosphere at the pools, with a bar a few metres from the water.
Rent a lounger and enjoy wonderful days in the sun. Admission is free.
Many people don't know or even imagine that the coast of the island of Madeira is rich in marine wildlife. One of the many activities available in the region is to take a boat trip and observe dolphins and whales in their natural habitat.
These animals are to be seen in plenty throughout the year, with several companies specialising in this activity to provide you with a unique experience along the coasts of our wonderful Madeira island.
These are probably the most famous natural swimming pools in Madeira, located in Porto Moniz on the north coast, and are a must when visiting the island. It's always a pleasure to gaze at these volcanic "treasures" through which the sea water flows freely. They have shallow areas and other areas where you can enjoy diving. There is good access for people with reduced mobility. An entrance fee is charged.
Their rich biodiversity, an average temperature of 21ºC and good visibility are some of their greatest advantages. You don't have to travel long distances to find a good diving spot. You can stay in a hotel with its own diving centre and there are many professional diving clubs available to you, such as Focus Natura, Rhea Dive and Explora Madeira. Another feature of diving in Madeira is that, in addition to the places accessed by boat, you can also dive directly on beaches like Galo, Reis Magos and Caniçal.
