The Boiling Lake
The Boiling Lake in Dominica is another of the most dangerous places to swim. What makes this place so downright dangerous is the presence of scolding hot magma beneath its surface. This magma induces the water to reach the temperature of the boiling point, literally causing the lake to boil.
So if you’ve ever scalded yourself with boiling hot water, you’ll know the pain that this lake would cause. The pain would be worse, however, in that after a few brief moments your entire body would be surrounded by the stuff. If you’d like to avoid the warmest swim of your life, then obviously we’d recommend that you avoid the boiling lake. But what about somewhere less obviously dangerous, but even more deadly?
