“Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

These rock pools are adjacent to the extermely well maintained Pilar Beach.

You can either swim around and step over low rocks, or go up on a concrete path through a grotto and step down.

The rock gives the water an azure colour: stunning.

The beach is clean, as are its toilets (a 50 metre walk from the information kiosk.

Entry is P50. They get only 20 visitors a day in March but 200 a day in August and onwards when the surfing season starts.
