Travel Guide To Madeira - tips from a local - via @anasofianvasc, frommadeiratomars 05.02.2015 | I did this guide once for a friend of a friend that came to Madeira for the first time, a few months ago. It was based on my personal preferences. I’ve decided to share it on the blog so that you can use it and share it as an extra help to planning your stay. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
These natural pools in Porto Moniz, #Madeira are filled by tides from the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by lava rocks. / Las piscinas naturales, rodeadas de extrañas formaciones de lava y bañadas por aguas cristalinas, son sin duda el mayor atractivo de este pueblo. El complejo ofrece guardería e instalaciones para los discapacitados. Resto de instalaciones: Vestuarios con casilleros, duchas, un bar, un puesto de socorro y un aparcamiento. #Madeira #Portugal
