This is probably a great stop when the pools are bubbly! The tide has to be high though, or no bubbles. We were actually on a scavenger hunt so it didn't matter for us. The walk can get a bit challenging as you scramble over rocks and gravel, but I did it with flip flops, so it can't be too... More

we made our way to the bubbly pool and we were glad we did... the tide was low but the high tide was starting to come in ( it's where the Atlantic and Carribean meet ) so although it was not very "bubbly" it was enough for us to enjoy and get some pics! the 15min hike was not difficult... More

A great little hike and well worth the walk. The surf varied on size and when the bigger waves came in the fun began

This place is a must see for sure! We went twice, go when the surf is expected to be big and you will see nature at its finest.

We visited the Bubbly Pool after a nice lunch at Foxy;s Taboo- we got directions from the bar staff. Be sure to wear shoes and take your camera- worth the 10-15 minute walk. Very pretty site- only a few other people when we were there and it was a refreshing dip after the short walk. Enjoy!

Go to the bubbly pool no matter what the conditions! We were told by locals not to bother, the surf was not high enough, not enough bubbles. We went anyway and it was well worth it! We are thrilled everyone else listened as we were the only ones there!

We took guests with teenage daughters to the Bubbly Pools this past weekend. The hike there was pretty and provides everyone with nice views. Bring shoes! There was a small North swell which was perfect for a small amount of bubbles but not enough to be dangerous. Make sure your boat captain has checked the swell to make your visit... More

My family and I visited the Bubbly Pool in December of 2011 when the seas were very rough and high. Every time the waves breached the stones we were faced with a wall of water way over our heads and were knocked off our feet every time. It was amazing but dangerous. There is a ring of rocks around the... More

Went there for fun and it wasn't very bubbly as our timing was off. No problem as we did a lot of snorkeling in the bay with the turtles and all was well.

If the water is rough and the winds are high the bubble pool is worth a visit. However, on a calm day, is is like a bathtub and not really worth the hike to visit.
