This is a great pool to relax and cool off. Next to it is a great waterfall as well. No wonder It is one of the places used in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3.

If you love nature the walk alone to the Emerald Pool is a sight to take in. The wonderfully lush vegetation is of a tropical rainforest, with fresh clean air and the distant sound of the waterfall as you approach. Once there you encounter the...More

A short walk along managed paths to a viewing platform. The more adventurous can climb through the boulders and swim in the pool under the waterfall. The water is quite cold but very refreshing after the 15 minute hike.

Plenty of parking, visitor centre with toilets, good trail to the pool & waterfall. Well worth taking a dip - bit bracing at first but not too bad!
