Dive into a natural aquarium and swim among the fish at Piscine Naturelle, a pool formed by coral cliffs and surrounded by pine trees. Tropical fish fill the shallow pool at low and high tides, making for rewarding visits at various times of day. Don't forget to take reef shoes to protect your feet from the scattered coral. Unless you want to rub shoulders and knees with throngs of other swimmers, avoid visiting when cruise ships arrive.

This pool is absolutely amazing. There is many different kinds of fish and general aquatic life. You could spend hours here! It is advisable to wear reef/water shoes and to make sure that you acquire snorkeling gear beforehand. It is a little bit of a walk, but the walk isn't too bad if you have a good sense of balance and watch where you are walking. There is an abundance of small aquatic life that can easily be stepped on, on the way there, so watch your step! High tide is the best time to go. It would also be advised to bring a waterproof camera if you wish to take photos of the fish :)
What a great lagoon... we were lucky enough to be there off season and had the whole place to ourselves for around 3 hours. Saw nearly 100 species of fish and felt perfectly safe the whole time. Beautiful spot and well worth visiting isle of pines just to snorkel here.
