To get to the bubbly pool you need to hike about 10 minutes, do bring comfortable shoes. Amazing view, water was clear and refreshing was lucky to get there before more tourists arrived to enjoy the view and the tranquility of the place. Great visit.

We visited the Bubbly Pool when the ocean was animated and the Bubbly Pool gave us a fun show! But don't get too close to where the water rushes in. One of us was almost sucked out. Scary!

Little hike to get there and it's kinda cool. However, it's not a half day deal. Maybe an hour or so and your ready to go. There are more attractions that I would rather see and spend time at. Hey, but everyone is different.

We made a cruise with a visit to Jost van Dyke. This site is a long way from the pier with an expensive taxi ride to the pool. Once there the walk to the pool is poorly marked. The path from end of road can...More

We visited in early December and our Charter Boat Captain took us to Bubbly Pool. It was sad seeing Foxy’s Taboo destroyed from the hurricanes but hopefully they will rebuild. The hike to the Bubbly Pool from the dock is about a half of a...More

Unless you make the hike at the right time you may be disappointed. The tide has to be coming in to make it bubbly. We made the hike in about 20 minutes because the site was "closed" due to the hurricanes in September. No signs,...More

Been there twice. No vegetation due to Irma. Walk is easy—-wear shoes. Pool is as always. Ignore closed signs.

You can go to Foxy's...but the Foxy's Taboo is by the bubbly pool. This is owned by Foxy's son. I highly recommend both places. I have not taken a taxi from one side to the other, we charter a boat and dock at taboo and hike... More
