The Ponta Gorda Bathing Complex is located in the tourist area of Funchal. It is precisely its proximity to the seafront public promenade that makes this bathing area one of the first options for bathing, both for tourists and residents. This is the second largest bathing complex in Funchal, with an extensive solarium area and two saltwater pools - one for adults and another for children - as well as a tidal pool with cyclically renewed water.
The sea is accessible via stairs that were placed around the area, so it is guaranteed that you can enjoy the ocean without restrictions, as long as you don't swim beyond the marked area.
During the bathing season, a large platform is installed in the sea, providing entertainment for all those who dare to swim over there. From there you can jump into the water or simply let yourself be rocked by the waves.
The Ponta Gorda Bathing Complex offers a wide range of support services and infrastructures, including first aid, parasol and sun lounger rental, changing rooms, a supervised beach, a beach library, Wi-Fi, a bar and terrace, and support accessibility for people with reduced mobility.
