Anyone with mobility issues should NOT attempt this trip as it borders on dangerous, particularly the climb down to the rockpool. What should be a beauty spot is absolutely ruined by litter - plastic bottles strewn everywhere and broken glass in 'carpark'. Whoever is responsible...More

This is a hidden oasis beautiful & tranquil we came as part of an excursion and loved it had a lovely meal. Swinging off the swing into the water is the aim but the water is very cold. Beautiful location

What ever you do make time to visit here, very scenic, relaxing, ice cold water to swim in, good places to eat and have drinks, as well as feed the trout.
