Located beneath a Methodist chapel, Piula Cave Pool is a natural freshwater swimming hole fed by a spring. The crystal-clear water extends outside the cave as well, so claustrophobic visitors can still enjoy a dip. However, if you are feeling adventurous, explore farther in and find a second attached cave. Take your snorkeling gear and try to spot the tropical fish. Changing rooms and toilets are available.
