We loved our visit here. The ladder was not as scarey, high or steep as I was imagining. Swimming was great fun. We were there at high tide and it got a little rough as it started to go down but the ropes were good....More

You need to be able bodied to be able to go down to the water. It’s fantastic once you are down there. The ladder can be a bit sippery so you just need to be careful. Very refreshing water. You can purchase soft drinks there....More

The total area is well maintained with gardens. View of sea is fantastic Water in the hole is clean. As one has to use steep wooden stairs, seniors to avoid swim in the hole in case you are not completely fit.

Sorry for the late reply as I have been away. November was humid and muggy. It rained a fair bit also. I think the best time to go is, Spring or Winter.
