We went to the Natural Pool during the Sunrise Tour with Club Arias. We got there before all the tour bases and had the pool to ourselves. It was amazing. The fish were beautiful and feeding them was awesome. The scenery was breathtaking and undisturbed. This is a must. Going on the Sunrise Tour is a must. All the tour... More

THE BEST and only way other than a tour group to get to this hidden gem is to grab a rental Jeep and go four wheeling all through the aroikok National Park. the trip is half the fun and the awesome cool down soak and swim in this little inlet protected from the HUGE waves is definatly worth the trip....

Had a friend from the Renaissance drive us in his Jeep to this site. The most life before me trip by jeep I have ever had. Very dangerous, DO NOT RENT A JEEP AND THINK YOU CAN MAKE THIS TRIP. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!!! No kidding, great site to see, but there is a hike from the closest to the pool you... More

What a treat it was to go there for sunrise. The sea life was beautiful and worth getting up to go there at the crack of dawn.

Since our last trip the signage has improved to the Arikok park, lots of entrances. We entered at Shete, it appeared that the road had been plowed and improved slightly, only until we got to the top of the hill. Then the same really bumpy ride. Take your time, need 4x4 for get to the pool, but its worth it.... More

Make no mistake you need a good 4x4 and need to know how to put it in 4 wd and 4WD low ratio, however once you know this, go for it. The road is really rocky and rutted but can be done slowly to stop too much bumping around. Once down the steep hill, you park up and walk down... More

We had rented a jeep from More 4 Less (that went very smoothly and would recommend it to anyone) to go to the Natural Pool. We had started our journey from the entrance of the national park by the windmills and traveled to the natural pool. The pool is inside the national park and each tourist must pay $10 to... More

We rented a jeep for the day and drove there ourselves. To say the road is road is the understatement of the century and the walk to get down to the pool is a bit rocky too but I am soooo glad that we went, the scenery is absolutely breath taking.

First of all the place is hard to reach both driving and walking. You will need to find the entrance of the park and then a 4x4 vehicle otherwise they don't let you in. Once you get to the Place it is not as spectacular as other natural pool I have visited, It is up to you to spend the... More
