a great place to snorkel with children, especially on windy days when the ocean may be rough - the secluded spot is protected by rocks and is nice and calm for beginners.

We took De palm tours and it was part of an excursion that I highly recommend. It's as much fun getting there as the Natural Pool is impressive. But you need to feel comfortable going off road ....really off road! Great vistas....I liked going with a knowledgeable guide (roland) who navigated the land rover pretty close to the natural pool...less... More

Went on jeep tour with De Palm Island Tours. Arnold was our driver. Gave us a great ride. Natural pool was beautiful. You could swim and snorkel. We chose not to. Tour was great

Natural pool is a very beautiful place to visit but it is a small pool and I was expecting to see much more fishes there. We were there with The Palm tours road adventure and their staff is really funny and friendly. Specially Matthew who was our driver.

Something you don't get to see every day. It's worth the small hike and jeep ride to check out this sweet little hidden gem. Although there were a lot of people there I was able to catch a minute to take a dip in the pool. I'm glad I got to see it but once is enough.

This is a really cool experience...although not one for the faint of heart! You either have to walk to the Natural Pool (a long walk), drive in with a Jeep (over a very rough path - can't call it a road), or join an excursion (pretty pricey). But once you get there - it is definitely worth it!!! Be careful... More

George with de palm tours was a wonderful guide. he was both friendly and knowledgeable in answering our questions. George was also funny and made our trip even better because of his company.

We took an atv tour that took us here and it was amazing. You have to take a path of stairs down so be aware if stairs are difficult for you. Getting in to the natural pool can be tricky as we'll because you have to climb over rocks with algae so be careful, but once your in it's amazing!... More

We hiked to the natural pool, which took much longer than we anticipated, but it was worth it! We passed lots of wild goats on our trek there. The water was crystal clear and refreshing. It was a nice calm pool with big waves constantly crashing over the rocks. Luckily, we met a nice couple there that gave us a... More

The natural pool is another of the contrived tourist attractions in Aruba. There is really nothing there to see, but it is a journey to get there, and it is a scenic and wild place, so that part is nice. As far as snorkeling and what you can see, you are far better off going to Baby Beach or Arashi... More
