Max and Emily explored Madeira to discover for themselves the amazing wild swimming spots to be found here in this sub-tropical paradise.
Without further ado here are some images to inspire you to dip into Madeira…
Emily swims the cool waters of the impressive Cascata do Risco at Rabacal.
Walking into the Risco gorge
It’s worth walking to the end of the Levada das 25 Fontes at Rabacal where the eponymous waterfalls spill into the idyllic forest glade. 25 waterfalls and one swimmer.
Porto Moniz is an hour – and a world – away from Funchal. The natural volcanic pools are ideal for a morning dip.
The most famous natural sea water pools are at the Aqua Natura hotel, a short walk from your sea view room for an early morning swim without the crowds.
Did she get in? Our guides can show you the hidden pools far from the tourist track.
Azure infinity: the view from the salt water pool at Porto da Cruz.
Personal, efficient and informal service which made booking and travelling very straightforward and stress-free.
