The Piula Cave Pool is an incredible freshwater cave pool situated close to the old Methodist Church. The pool connects two small caves via an underground waterway and is the ideal place to relax and take a dip in the clear water to cool off. Swimmers must be careful not to do damage any of the marine life in the cave pool when they are paddling and cooling off.

This dark and imposing cave is one of the islands most mysterious locations and is worth visiting for intrepid ramblers who will enjoy the long jungle trek to reach it.
