We stopped here later in the day on the way back to town during a tour. The water is amazingly clear and the surrounding forest simply adds to the beauty of this spot. There are rope swings off the dock and a large Banyan tree, plus you can walk down to a dock to enter the water directly. The water... More

Stunningly blue water, so refreshing and clear. It was pouring but still absolutely wonderful. Took me ages to work up the courage to climb up for the high rope swing but totally worth it!!

The biggest of the island, it includes a lot of places to jump off and an amazing clear water. U can swim all around the "lake" and have a lot of fun. U have to pay a fee but totally worth it!

Nice way to spend a couple of hours. Relaxing in the water or throw yourself in again and again. Super clear water and lovely a cold to cool off from the heat
