The island of Aruba is noted to have the best weather in the Caribbean. Its sunny days, clear beaches and white sands make it a picture-perfect scene. It is one of the lesser-explored Caribbean islands, hence, one of its beautiful spots to unwind, the Conchi Natural Pool, is also not well-known.
This natural pool is one of Aruba’s most remote tourist attractions that can be accessed either by hiking, horseback or by an off-terrain vehicle.
The secluded yet beautiful site located inside Aruba’s national park Arikok is popularly called ‘Conchi’ (bowl) or ‘Cura di Tortuga’ (Turtles Cove). It is a unique formation of volcanic stone circles that form a serene pool.
Regardless of the calm nature of the pool, occasional waves blow over into the pool found in one of Aruba’s rockiest terrain. The journey to the ‘awe-inspiring power and beauty of nature’ may be a deterrent for many but worth taking and very Instagram worthy.
Those interested in snorkeling can take their masks and swimsuits for when the waters are calm to take a dive in the pool. It is advisable to also bring a pair of water shoes to protect yourself from the slippery rocks.
The pool can have about 12 people in it at the same time and is the perfect place for a getaway as it does not get a lot of people trekking there in large groups even though it is advisable to enlist the services of a local guide before you embark on the trip to this stunning natural pool.
