Day 1

  • Drive Time: 1 hour

Today’s itinerary is planned for you to explore the exquisite town of Porto Moniz at your leisure. After your private transfer from Funchal to your 4-star hotel in Porto Moniz, you will have the day to yourself! Porto Moniz features a natural complex of lava pools that you can visit and take a dip in. Porto Moniz is named after one of the first settlers to the area: Francisco Moniz O Velho who arrived in the last quarter of the 15th century. The two pool complexes Piscinas Naturais do Porto Moniz and Piscinas Naturais do Aquario are certainly worth checking out. Another popular attraction is the João Baptista Fort, which is a replica of the fort first built in 1730 to protect the local population from pirate attacks. Porto Moniz also offers an aquarium first opened in 2005. The Laurisilva of Madeira is a primarily laurel forest in the vicinity of Porto Moniz that boasts endemic plant and animal species such as the Madeiran long-toed pigeon.

Day 2

  • Drive Time: 1 hour

Depending on your flight departure time, you may choose to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel (included), spend more time in the pools, or any other exploring you’d like to do in Porto Moniz.
