Owner description: Although there's no proof that Cleopatra actually bathed here, this spring-fed pool is very popular.
Reviewed March 20, 2008

This was a truly fantastic experience!
To swim in this spring pool you really do need to be a strong and confident swimmer, the steps leading into the pool can be a bit slippy so care does need to be taken. The pool itself is very deep, have no idea how deep it really was - but looking down through the crystal clear waters made it look exceptionally deep! There were a few green weeds growing on the bottom and occasionally floating to the top - but no sign of scum. The bubbles coming up from the depths make this a unique bathing experience and the water is warm and pleasant.

There is a small changing room (more of a shed really with a few nails in the wall!) but any changing shed is better than no changing shed at all! Toilets and a cafe serving good food are also available.

Some reviews I had read of this pool lead me to believe it was a scum filled pond surrounded by ogling men - this wasn't the case on the day I went - so take you're towel and bathing costume - you may be tempted to take a dip!
