A small, freshwater stream flows nearby and is the perfect place to rinse off after sunning and swimming in the Bath. Views of the ocean and the rocky shoreline here are fantastic.  When the surf is cooperating, usually in the summer months, the water is calm and crystal clear. However, if the surf is pounding  you can't even find the pool.
