Great little hidden treasure

Just a little hike past Foxy's Taboo. A pool that is created when there is high tide over the rocks. Little fish, urchins etc not to mention crashing waves were great

Enjoyed the pulsating waves after a short, but warm hike. Good socializing too with fellow travelers.

The bubbly pools take some time and hiking to get to, but are well worth the trouble. I don't recommend it if you have any physical disabilities. Amazing and unique natural attraction to see!

Totally worth the small hike. Just too many people once we got there. Wanted it all ourselves. We hiked the high ridge down to the pool. Not recommended for those who are unable to climb or hike in steep terrain, but is so worth it for the pics.

Try not to drink too much sea water what with all the laughing you'll be doing. And hold on to your bathing suit! It's more than worth the short treck to get to. WEAR good soled shoes en route. The path is a little rocky and prickly. Enjoy!

We were there twice during our visit and the tide was pretty low both days. BUT- we still had a great time. You just have to be patient and wait for a wave to crash in and disrupt everything. I havent been to anything quite like it - it is worth the hike. To get there you can walk from... More

It's a place to go to kill time before your food is ready at Taboo. The bubbly pool gets crowded after ~3 people are in it. And it's not some special hot spring or anything. It's just a place the water comes into off the rocks. I think the phrase I heard most was "this is it?"

The bubbly pools are a short walk from Foxxy's Taboo dock. The pools have more action during the winter months, but are now great for a family with kids to go check out. I like to have guests check out the bubbly pool and then grab a bight to eat at Taboo. All in all, this is one of things... More

It's a nice relaxing hike to the bubbly pool after a long day of sailing. It's very pretty and a fun place to visit if you are nearby.
