Though the natural beauty is what draws many to this tropical paradise, the legends surrounding it are sure to be part of the appeal.
For one thing, it is bottomless. No diver has reached the lower extent of its blue majesty, lending an eerie feeling to those diving into the abyss.
What lies beneath?
Swimmers can enjoy the enchanted waters at their leisure until noon, when all are asked to stay on shore. At that time, the caretakers throw a feast onto the surface, calling swarms of fish from out of nowhere.
Yet, no fish has ever been caught from this pool. One story purports that at dusk, fishwives of the area laid their fish traps, but returned to find them hanging on a branch the next day.
Two pale-skinned women with flowing hair were viewed bathing under a full moon. The witnesses, a father and son, said the apparition vanished in a swirl of fireflies.
Even Neptune has a part in the stories, and is said to have carved sets of furniture in a nearby cave for "King Neptune's Party."
The legends seem to flow with the gentle energy of the pool, which is fully accessible - even accommodations are provided for the fortunate traveler to this popular area.
