Natural Pools

One of the most emblematic images of Madeira Island is its natural pools. They are made of volcanic rocks; there the sea enters naturally, forming pools of salt water, thanks to the magnificence of the waves. The natural effects of the waves against the rocks are a sight to see; another wonderful natural spectacle that can be enjoyed on days when the sea is calm are the pools becoming real lakes, offering the sensation of swimming in the sea, but in a natural pool.
