This is a great place to visit especially if it's cool outside. There are bathrooms and a changing room near the pool. You can get drinks and snacks as well. There's a restaurant at the spa that we did not eat at. We enjoyed the natural beauty of the pool. Water shoes recommended.

Loved this place! It was busy for good reason. A beautiful spot, excellent facilities but most of all you get to climb down into sea water warmed by a geothermal spring, 28 degrees of bliss for my arthritic bones. Couple of words of warning - the ladders are steep and slippery; there were jellyfish amongst us. No one was stung... More

We UTV'd there and planned with the tour guide to go into the hot springs when the tide was low. Unique sensation to be in hot water while cold waves crash in. Keep a hold of the rope, especially if not a good swimmer
