The Nylon Pool is a shallow warm area in the middle of Buccoo Reef. You can get off the boat here and enjoy the warm water. On my trip, the boat captain showed us a big sea-urchin and a tiny crab. It's a perfect place to relax and just float!

To reach that serene spot was a not too long of a boat trip aboard the vessel "Cool Running". The clarity of the water was unbelievable; it was paradise in the middle of the ocean! The sand was said to be exfoliating with the warm sea waters. The fishes were small but added much scenic value to the occasion. The... More

Took a glass bottomed boat trip out to the nylon pool and it was a lovely experience. Very strange being so far out and being able to comfortably stand in the turquoise waters. Would recommend a visit.

Going into the nylon pool was so an almost euphoric experience.... the water is only about 3feet deep, so you can stand up. Then you can rub all the "sand" which is actually broken up coral all over ur body exfoliating your skin. Is said that it takes ten years off your life and if children do it they will... More

Before entering Pigeon Point, we stopped to pay the Capt. although that was not necessary because the hawkers will approach you while you are on the Pigeon Point beach to sell you glass bottom boat rides to Nylon Pool or to rent jet skiis. The cost to enter Pigeon Point is $20 TT per person per day. Wristbands are distributed... More
