Not easy to find and not easy to get to, but definitely worth the effort. We had an incredible afternoon walking, swimming and jumping off the rocks into crystal clear water. Amazing scenery. Our route involved a steep drive on a thin, dusty, uneven track...More

A beautiful setting. Well worth a visit. My teenagers loved it. Wear decent trainers that you don't mind getting wet and take plenty of water.
