well protected from waves, the snorkeling was awesone, we saw beautiful fish everywhere, surprisingly not overcrowded.
you have to wade in the water to get to it, depending on the time of day, as it is dependent on the tides

This is something we would travel back to the Ile Des Pins just to do again. The pool is open to the ocean by a narrow rocky channel which means it refreshed at each tide change. The coral, the colourful fish all around the clams on the bottom make this an ideal snorkelling venue. We prefer this to the Great Barrier Reef!

Just go - if you like to swim and snorkel in safe, magnificent surrounds, then this is THE place.

I heard that the place was really good but it did not match my expectation for snorkeling. However except that disappoint the place is really nice and can be enjoyable hike from Upi Bay!

We loved this place!! Snorkeled in the morning, went and had lobster lunch on the beach and then came back in the afternoon. The tide was out in the afternoon and there were few snorkelers. With the tide being out the fish were in a concentrated area. Absolutely lovely!!!
