The ocean pools are not used by local people or anyone else for swimming at that time of year because the water is simply too cool. The water temp is approx. only 17 - 20 C depending on location and active currents. Despite the cool water temps, the natural pools are great scenic stops, especially in places like Quatro Ribeiras. Most swimming in the natutal pools happens in late May and into the summer.
