I'm 66, my son is 28. We helped 85 y.o. granny down the rope to the pool . My son ended up with torn muscles over his ribs. Granny says it was worth it! Excellent snorkelling & swimming spot at low tide.

Wear your hiking shoes if you want to go to the Crystal Pool. Very steep climb, with signs advising to do so at your own risk.

The climb down to Crystal Pools is for the fit and adventurous. There are ropes to hold on to, so bring gloves so you don't get blisters on your hands. Once down you still need to climb some rocks to get to the viewing area...More

Most people won't walk down to this pool in the rocks when they see the location, but worth a drive to see what's out here. While on this corner of the island, make sure you drive down to Creswell Bay and walk the short boardwalk...More
