Crystal clear pool

Clear pool running into a cave with little fish swimming around. There was only one other person there when we visited in November. Picnic areas and good swimming.

Piula cave pool was just beautiful with fresh water and massive fishes! Mainly pretty much deep waters but you'll be able to find sallow waters next to the rocks. If your kids are unable to swim please make sure your with them at all times! My kids loved it! Beautiful place to take photos too!

Beautiful clear water with fish. Surrounded by small fale's for shade and to eat. The church is directly about the pool, the choir is wonderful.

After To Sua Ocean Trench, Piula Cave Pool as a little bit underwhelming. It's still pretty and nice to swim in the fresh water, but it is quite small and safe. Might be a nice place to bring children if the Trench is too dangerous but otherwise I wouldn't recommend making a special trip out to see the pool

Very small pool for all ages. Swim through the cave to the other side to see the experience. 5T to enter by foot and 10T to take your car down. Nice for picnics and family gathering.

A beautiful fresh water pool with black sand and fish. The cave pool is close to the beach and also sits at the bottom of a cliff that has a church not far away at its peak. I'm not a big fan of church Hymns, but they seemed to go well with the beauty of the occasion.

A fresh water pool with fish. Swim in the refreshing waters and then grab some time in the sun or a nap in the Fale's. Located right next to the sea, so if it proves too refreshing, you can jump over the wall into the coral lagoon! Take a picnic and make a day of it. WST$5 each, as the... More

Half natural, halfman made they've done a fantastic job of creating a lovely space for people to enjoy. There's a cafe, fale's to sit in and lots of tree's to... More

This is a real good place for a refreshing swim as the water is cool and you get to swim with the fishes. You can swim to the edge of the cave but it is a bit creepy (but I guess that's part of the fun). The view of the ocean is very nice as well.
