  • See amazing views of the coast.
  • Spend hours looking for crabs, fish, and other creatures.


This tide pool is a local secret. The hike is short and easy but dense with scenery. It takes 5-10 minutes (if you want a longer hike, see 'Private Hike To Secret Jungle Tide Pool, Medium Distance'). It includes a jungle trail and a quick hike over coastal lava rocks. Your experience will be customized because it's private. - You'll see amazing views of the coast. - The pool is like an infinity pool overlooking the cliffs. You'll feel close to the wild ocean while also being protected. - The crystal clear water is mineralized by the lava rock, giving it healing properties. - You'll spend hours exploring the ecosystem, e.g., crabs, fish, shells, other exotic creatures. You can also explore the views from the lava rock border. - The conditions are unusually calm, so it's ideal for all ages. There's a deep (4-7 ft.) and shallow (1-4 ft.) area. - The area won't be overrun with tourists. At most, there'll be a few other people there. The lava rocks on the coastal trail are often unstable, uneven, or slippery. You don't need to be in shape to do it because it's such a short distance. If you want to do a harder hike to a different, even more secretive tide pool, see 'Private Hike To Secret Jungle Tide Pool, Medium Distance'.
