This pool was beautiful with white sands and only reaches you to your waist. It's elements are supposed to make you 10 years younger. Your skin feels smooth when you leave the pool

Water is shallow, and clean. You can sit down and give yourself an exfoliating scrub with the coral.

It was allegedly in 1962 when Princess Margaret commented that the water was as clear as her nylon stockings when the phenomena was first named. Comprising an area of coral chippings behind the reef that is between ankle-deep and waist deep, tide dependant, blue, clear and warm you are supposed to lose 10 years from your age for dipping in...

Captain Christopher of the Boat Solo Amor said of this place that ladies would become 5 years younger and men 5 years wiser after immersing themselves in the waters of this shallow reef. I'll let you know if it's true in 5 years time! Regardless it was a fabulous experience and you should definitely go there!

Part of all the snorkeling and glass bottom boat trips which is great but try and pick a quiet time as you will see nothing unless you do!

This is a somewhat unusual place and I'm sure it's very interesting to visit, however, it didn't meet my expectations. Several boats of tourists are present at any given time and the place changes into a very loud party place. I would have enjoyed it more if it weren't for the music and crowds...

This is a sandbar in the sea. It is beautiful but there so many great places to dive and snorkel. You cam stand in crystal clear waters pretty much anywhere on the island. Any romantic notions quickly dissappear as the rum and the trip turns to a party fun but that too you can do anywhere.

Nylon pool is a shallow sand bank around Bucco reef. The water is knee deep, even though you are 400m or so from the shore. Great to go in a glass bottomed boat and see the surrounding reef fish - we even saw a sting ray trying to hide in the sand

It was just an area of shallow water in the middle of the sea. The snorkeling was not great. ON the other hand, the sea was warm.
