Porto Moniz

Porto Moniz is at the far north-west of the island of Madeira. It’s possible to take different routes from and back to Funchal, giving a round trip of the South Coast and the mountains. Tunnel construction has reduced the outward bus journey from 4 hours to 3.


The village is delightful with fine views both ways along the coast and inland. There are natural rock pools which are used as swimming pools and the old fort is now an aquarium.
