Crystal Pools

(Contributed by )

Magnificent natural pools in the Palmiet river close to Gordon’s Bay. There are three deep pools surrounded by high cliffs. The path starts out fairly gently: after a quick walk down to the valley floor it follows the river up the valley. The path is well marked out, with short red pegs in the ground at regular intervals.
