Seixal Beach is one of the most stunning, awe-inspiring beaches on Madeira Island in Portugal. It truly felt like I stumbled upon the Hawaii of Europe. The stretch of beach was a lot smaller than what I expected but it was made up of soft black sand and a breathtaking mountain backdrop complete with ridges and waterfalls. It is especially beautiful during sunrise when the light shines through the clouds and perfectly illuminates the cliffs - it's defintely a must see!

Time of day: sunrise for photos (the beach gets very busy as it is quite small) Months to go: year round Gear to bring: wide angle lens, zoom lens, and drone
