This iconic pool was built from a coral rock quarry, where much of the original coral rock was used to border and further accentuate the pool. It is fed with spring water from an underground aquifer. In the spring and summer seasons, the pool is filled and drained daily! It also features two waterfalls, cave-like grottos and sandy “beach” for lounging.
