We anchored and went ashore for a short walk through the trees to bubbly pool. The walk is easy; about 7 minutes. The pool has crystal clear, cool water. The surface rises and falls as the waves rush in between rocks that separate the pool from the ocean. Very pretty if you don't wade in and very exciting if you... More

Every 5-10 waves comes in like a wall of white water and rolls you around like you're a sock in a washing machine. Super cool rock formation just a short hike from the dingy dock. Totally worth an hour or two of your trip

This used to be s private secluded spot that just we locals could enjoy if we wanted a spot to get away for a while! Now over run with tourist and their screaming kids!! It seems it's a national landmark now! Check out the baths on cruise ship days!!

We went when the North Swells were really ripping, so we really enjoyed the bubbly pool! I can see where it can be dangerous! The tide just barrels into the crevice and rips out! Fun to watch and sit in. Make sure you walk up the path to the left of the pool for an awesome view. The hike is... More

Once in Diamond Cay, this is a short easy walk from Foxy's Taboo Restaurant. It is great place to take pictures of people in your group - bring your cameras. What this is, is a small cut out of a rocky north shore into a small inlet. It is not a blow whole. You can walk in quite safely and... More

We enjoyed the short hike to the bubbly pool. The day was very windy and we had lots of bubbles. The pool is pretty, relatively small, and when the waves come through and crash it is like a mini wave pool. Following our hike out, we enjoyed lunch at Foxy's Taboo.

Its another one of those places you just have to see when your in the BVIS. The water is crystal clear and when a big wave crashes over the rocks it feels like your in bubbly bath(without the heat). We climbed up on the rocks and took some great photos of the surf crashing in. I wouldn't get in the... More

Been to the Bubbly Pool 3 times & only once has it been worth the short hike. When the North Swell is up, it is worth seeing. If it's not, don't waste your time! Ask some of the captains around Foxys Taboo or watch the current. That way you can go at the right time.

I have looked at pictures from the bubbly pool which have seemed amazing and incredibly cool. But when I got there it was not as incredible as I had thought it would be. In fact I think it is Cool to have been there but if I come back to the BVI I would prefer to visit the caves instead... More

There is a little of a walk to get here but so much worth the trip. We all enjoyed ourselves in the water. I could of just spent the day here because it was so much fun. After that we went to Foxy's Taboo.
