Porto da Cruz

We were in Porto da Cruz a couple of times during our stay in Madeira. It has a beautiful route around a little hill which surrounds the sea, and also two natural beaches and a little sea water pool (not as big as Porto Moniz, but much more peaceful). If you walk in the village you’ll find some points of interest, like a sugar factory that’s been working since 1926, the winery of “vinho seco

Praia do Ribeira do Faial

The complex has a beach, a restaurant and a sport area with every service you may need, but this place is less known and much more peaceful. You can also see

It has some

Comte Beaches

Playas de Comte (Comte Beaches) is a group of sand coves separated by low cliffs on the East Coast of Ibiza, below San Antonio, and between Casa Bassa and Cala Tarida. You can reach it by a dirt road above the cliffs. From that point you can access by foot to different docking areas between the rocks and the sand coves. We stayed at the first we found. There weren’t many people and the sights
