  • Cave of poetry is part of the archaeological area of Roca. It is a natural cave and is among the 10 most beautiful natural pools in the world. Enjoy the scenery and peace that this place offers. My second this year with the water still pretty cold.

  • I've been to the cave early August, we arrived at about 10.30. It really is a unique place that is definitely worth seeing. The water is crystal clear and beautiful cliffs through which we can get into the water and diving. Tips I can give are: 1) try to go fairly early in the morning (I think that already the 9 is a good time), 2) wear umbrella (there are no areas equipped) 3) carry shoes for rocks (not required, but they help definitely to move around on the rocks), only downside is really crowded and it ruins a little landscape , so avoid particularly hot days and times

  • Must see! Impressive looking at it from above and get the pictures just a few centimeters from the edge.

  • Beautiful hole in the high cliffs where the water gets in from the sea. People usually dive from the rocks - water is fairly deep, but caution is needed. Nice for a short stop, not suitable for a longer stay. There is no place where to get to the sea proper.
  • So much fun. It's crowded so go early. Bring snorkel gear for more swimming. There aren't many places to lay down so bring chairs if you want to sunbathe
  • Natural pool featured in Nat Geo's top 10 natural pools. Clear blue waters in an alcove next to the sea, with jumping essential!
  • Nice place to visit. On sunny days it's a little crowded but on decent wetaher days you can have a very nice trip to there.
  • Stunning natural spot. It would be a 5 plus star but unfortunately can be really crowded.
