Nylon Pool is basically a sand bar in the middle of the bay. Unique? Yes. Must see? Not really. It is a fun little boat trip if you need to fill 2-3 hours of your day. Several glass bottom boats offer a trip to Nylon Pool and a few other spots along the way. Don't expect good service or hospitality... More

There are several boats that undertake this tour from Store Bay (usually two at the same time), all charge TT100, and all undertake approximately the same route. The touts who approach you as you arrive at Store Bay book you for the small tatty boat, the bookings taken at the booking kiosk in the Craft Village for a slightly larger... More

Boarded at Store Bay. The sea was choppy there and it was a bit tedious for some persons to board the boat, especially the older and younger folks. The reef didn't have much to see but nevertheless was still beautiful. The description given by the tour boat operator was a brief, more detail would have been appreciated. No snorkeling was...

This place out in the sea is just beautiful. I wished to stay all day. Be sure to exfoliate with the sand/corals & thank me later. The water is shallow & never came past my waist . Sit in the water & get exfoliated by a friend/fam member/significant other. The best place to get some great pics because you are... More

the 1st natural wonder of the Caribbean ... Must visit if you are coming to the Caribbean !!! Although the conservationists should shut this site down for 10 years to rejuvenate - the corals are dying due to the over-tourism in this area. Over 35 years of visiting here - the reef has deteriorated !!

We went on sugar lips boat for a day out and part of out time was spent at Nylon Pool which was an amazing experience. The sea was lovely and warm and the fact we were sat on the sand in the middle of the ocean was stunning

It's like being at the shallow end of a pool except you're in the middle of the ocean. A glass bottomed boat takes you over the coral where there are so many fish to see. When you pull up in the nylon pool it's time to bathe and lose 10 years in looks in the shallow, warm water. Excellent.
