After visiting Porto Vecchio we took half an hour by car to the three swimming pools and arrived around 4pm. First you see an accrobranch (with adventurous pathways in the treetops) but continue straight on because the actual swimming pools are further down the road...More

Beautiful natural pools and easy to find. Cold but perfectly clear pools for swimming. Definitely worth a visit. We arrived at 9.30am and were the only people there for a good 1/2 hour. Lots of lizards basking in the morning sun.
