The hole itself is small, just 12 feet across, but has been carefully crafted by nature to create a deep enough (35 feet) splash point for those daring to take a high leap from the rocks above.

Hamilton Pool is incomparable. It’s so stunning you would be forgiven for thinking the pictures aren’t real.
