We drove our own Jeep (don't tell the rental company) down the long and treacherous road. White knuckles all the way but it was definitely worth it. Climbing down to the pool is not too bad. Take your time and don't wear flip flops (speaking from experience here). He pool was warm and calm and beautiful.

The fish are simply beautiful in this pool, however be ready to take many steps down and back up to get to this pool. Water shoes a must and not for anyone that have back issues or other physical limitations.

It was great. We picked a nice calm day. It was easy to get into the pools. Definitely worth the effort to get there! Fofoti tours were great. Utv were so comfortable!

We hiked into the Natural Pool from the north entrance at 9 am. If you get there before the staff you can go in and then pay the fee when you return or over at the Visitors' centre later on. It is a pretty steep and rough road with no shade so you need head coverage, sunscreen and water. If... More

You can see by the pictures where the waves come crashing over the wall, DO NOT CLIMB THERE! Just to the right of there you can see dry rocks, that's where you can climb. Well worth it. Stay off the wet side unless you like visits to the Emergency Room. Lots of small fish and crabs.

We took a long drive back to the Natural Pool and it was worth the drive. There was an experienced swimmer there who helped to tell us how to get into the pool. There are slippery rocks you need to walk around so you won't slip. He told us to sit down and to slide in on one of the... More

It is a difficult place to get to but that makes it all the more special. I think you can only take a 4x4 tour there because the terrain would tear a normal for to bits. If you do go in a normal car, don't tell the rental car companies and expect them to charge you for damage. Better idea... More

A great way to see and feel how rugged the countryside is to take the Land Rover Excursion by De Palm Tours. You’ll traverse the island’s rugged terrain in a guide-led caravan to your destination: the Natural Pool. There are four stops along the way to visit Allo Viste Chapel, a distant viewing of the California Lighthouse, the Gold mine... More

Go ahead and splurge and get a 4x4 for the day. Drive to the other side of the island and go to the natural pool. Download Maps.me on your phone and directions are available from the dirt roads! awesome place, awesome fish, go on a day when the cruise ships are not in port and you'll have the place to... More
