Spectacular! Very worth the hike to get to it! Just be aware of the trails as they come close to the edge of the cliffs.

if you're a little bit concerned about your hiking/climbing skills you're likely to get to the first pool, then stop. But, just the first pool is very worthwhile and it's an enjoyable and quiet area surrounded by beautiful blue green crystal water

Wear Hiking shoes! It gets slippery close to the tide. Take water and snacks with you b/c you will be hiking for about 45 mins. There are couple spots were rough but it is for sure worth it to go!!!

Great hike with amazing views. This is a perfect 1/2 day excursion. Plan to get a workout with steep inclines. Bring good shoes to battle the sharp rocks near the pools that you can get wet. The tide pool is "ok", but worth the trip. Water is a must!

Very rough trail walking from the resort but worth it. Tide pools were neat and snorkeling was great there better bring your strength or you might be washed out to sea.

Our family took the hike to the tide pools and the pristine location was definitely worth the effort. My recommendations though are to where appropriate shoes, bring water, and plan on doing some rock climbing. The trail is narrow in some parts, and has some significant up and down parts, so plans on a good hike. The tide pools themselves... More

It's a nice hike out the trail to the tide pools - although the tide was low it's all pebble beach and large rocks to stack! Nice hike and beautiful area.

45 minute hike from the hotel grounds to the tidal pools. Very cool to go for swim after the long medium difficulty hike. Around two mountains to the cove with the pools. The beach close to the pools is large river stone and makes the most interesting ocean sound as the waves break on shore and pull the rocks down... More

We have been to St. Croix 7 times, but had never gone to the Tidal Pools before. So this year we finally decided to go on the hike. It was very hot ( especially wearing a one- piece bathing suit under your clothing, LOL ) on the trail, but surprisingly no mosquitos. It is quite a hike to get there... More

Steep incline at first from the Carabola Beach resort and levels off somewhat. Wear hiking or tennis shoes. I wore water or boat shoes and should have had a little more support on my feet. Great hike in the rain forest to get there, wonderful views and beautiful views at the tide pool. Not much wildlife at the tide pool... More
