The island offers good conditions for all those who wish to enjoy the sun and swim, given that nearly all of the hotels have excellent swimming pools, the majority of which are salt water pools. Don’t leave without visiting the famous natural swimming pools at Porto Moniz, which are carved out of the rock.
