I am an crucian and had not been there while I lived on the island. However in the last three trips back home, I have taken my children to the tide pools. They started hiking as young as 4 (not recommended), and have always loved the hike and the pools. It is an all day affair. If you bring children on the hike, make sure they have good shoes and snacks. This is by far one of the can't miss adventures. I have always gone with a Local guide (aka a good family friend) who knows how to get over the boulders. I am not sure I would go with out him. The views from the trail are absolutely breath taking.
