Tough to get there, but once you do, I'm quite sure that you'll enjoy the view before you even get to the natural pool. The water in the natural pool is warm and clear to the bottom. It's quite amazing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Conchi! We arranged a tour from a local and had a great time. Here are a few tips: You cannot walk to Conchi. The ride up is extremely bumpy, but can hurt. Tourists shoukd not drive themselves because you can get lost or hurt. Always have a guide. The park costs USD$9-11, but change... More

So pretty! I have never been anywhere like this before. It is fun and an adrenaline rush to jump into the pool, great snorkeling. There are a lot of stairs to get down to the natural pool and it is slippery to get in. Lots of fun but not good if you have knee problems.

Very popular (can be sometimes very crowded) but wonderful place! You can only access with ATV or 4X4 but sooo worth it! Bring sunscreen and gargles to enjoy to the fullest. My favourite place in Aruba!

I have been many times to this beautiful part of the island called the Natural Pool or as the natives here call it "Conchi" meaning bowl, in the native language of Papiamento or "Cura di Tortuga" meaning Turtles Cove. The view is powerful and exiting to watch and even more so a powerful part of nature. To get there is... More

Many will tell you not to rent a jeep & drive there yourself. Not true! Exploring & 4 wheeling made the trip to Natural Pool a complete adventure. Bring your own snorkling equipment & enjoy. Great experiance but not for the faint of heart.

It was part of out tour package. So different than anything we had ever done. The walk down the mountain isn't for everyone.You should only go with a tour I would advise. When in the pool you never know when a big wave may crash over! I don't swim-but my husband does so I just grab him! We hung out... More

To get there you have to have 4WD and not for the faint of heart. If you want to swim there you need a life prserver and be a strong swimmer. It is on the windward side which looks like a lunar landscape. I have amazing pictures of the waves crashing into the pool. It is mostly protected from direct... More

Too rough to swim the day we went or it would have gotten 5 You need to be able to walk down and up some rugged stairs, but worth the effort if you are able.
