Seixal - Madeira Island (Portugal)

Seixal is a northern town of the north coast of Madeira. This small twon is characterised by its spectacular, verdant landscapes overlooking the deep blue sea. The beaches of this coast are usually composed by basalt pebbles smoothed by the sea. The sound generated by these pebbles, rolling by the action of the waves is quite impressive. We can also find dark sand beaches, artificial beaches and natural bathing pools.
