Conchi Natural – Pool
Conchi Natural Pool. The natural pool is protected from the rough sea by surrounding rocks. This is one on the favorite sites on the island for both locals and tourists. To get to the natural pool a 4×4 vehicle is needed.
Natural Pool is shaped out of volcanic rocks in the salty Caribbean sea. The violent waves from the open ocean pound upon the rocks creating a nice effect for the ones swimming in the pool, as seen in above image. The walls surrounding the pool will offer enough protection for the swimmers. Beware that on extremely windy days and high tide the waves are of such magnitude that it will cover the whole pool, therefore becoming treacherous. Depending on the time of day it the water could feel chilly to the touch, especially early in the morning.
Something that many people overlook is that there is another mini-pool (or hot tub) just a bit more elevated by the wall of rocks.

Lastly, a little known fact about the pool (many locals don’t even know this) is that on the right side of the pool, the area was once filled with large rocks some decades ago. This was to break the undertow below and to increase safety. Marine life adapted to this nicely and allowed for small fish to seek refuge in the pool. When you are in the pool you should snorkel to the right side and you will notice the rocks.

As great as it the Natural Pool is, not everyone “gets” it. The ride to the pool isn’t a picnic especially if you don’t know what you are doing. Often people say “I hope the ride was worth it”. Actually the ride is an integral part of the Natural Pool Experience. It goes together. You will love the pool, if you love off-road.
Once there, just before you walk into the pool, it will get slick and slippery, so beware. Also, I get a lot people say “I thought it was bigger”. It’s not that big, so try to schedule your time such a way that you can avoid traffic (more about that below).
Again, the ride is great, the pool is better. Just be sure to know about the pitfalls.
