There have been plenty of volcanic activity in Madeira in the past. It resulted in the formation of natural volcanic pools located near Porto Moniz village. Those pools get filled with salty water and are great for swimming. Even though Madeira is considered to be an ​all-year-round resort, in winter it often rains, and the water temperature falls below 19 °C, so it's hardly possible to swim for a long time.
