What could sound better than a hot spring in the ocean? This unique natural spot has a natural swimming pool that is fed by a hot spring.

The ocean temperature reaches 28 degrees Celsius at low tide, and the spring itself is a scorching 61 degrees Celsius.

There is a paved road down to the cliff where you will find a parking spot. This natural hot pool is accessible by a path that leads you all the way down to the pool. You are able to access the pool by walking mostly on smooth surfaces however eventually you have to cross some rocks to get to the pool so don’t forget to bring shoes along with you.
