We had an amazing time visiting the Nylon Pool. The water was warm and had a gorgeous colour. We saw schools of silvery fish and a shadow of the stingray. Since the Nylon Pool is only about 1 m deep, this is perfect for the beginner snorkelers. That was an amazing experience.

Nylon pool is a special place in Tobago. Anyone visiting the island please take a boat trip to Nyloon Pool. It's an amazing experience to be on the middle of the ocean standing up.

OMG! To actually see the live corals, fishes & the natural habitat of this marine protected site is out of this world. We enjoyed the entire two hours tour & the tour guide was marvelous, he explained the entire process of the reef, which made it even more enjoyable, we bathed at the pool, the water is shallow & turquoise,...

A reasonable way to spend a few hours visiting 'residual' corals and fish, to swim in crystal clear waters at shallow spots on the coral white sands "high spots ' in the Nylon Pool area, safe and memorable especially for kids to do snorkelling....bring very light snacks...no ETOH preferable, or recommended for better enjoyment

Apparently so named by Princess Margaret on her honeymoon,so local legend goes. Reached by boat,you jump into the shallow waters in the coral reef,rub your skin with the sand made from coral and you become 10 years younger,but be careful if you are a pensioner you may have to start working again!Great fun,and went twice.The second time on a glass...

Too many people fir me. Couldn't enjoy the pool. However the pool is very shallow and easy to stub your te on the coral. Not for me but the glass bottom boat was excellent

The Nylon Pool and environs is lovely. The snorkelling is memorable. Unfortunately the water was so rough over the weekend that I was violently sick throughout the entire tour despite taking gravol. Still grateful for the experience of beautiful reef life and shallow water in the middle of the ocean :)

Only accessible by a short boat trip, this sandbank can be enjoyed even by anyone who doesn't swim. Most reach it by a glass bottom boat which, in itself, proved a worthwhile way to spend a couple of hours. Most of these trips can be booked locally at modest cost
