Venus Pool - a special mention

Technically this is NOT a tidal pool but rather a beautiful, natural rock pool large enough for floating about and snorkelling.  This rock pool is carpeted in a kaleidoscope array of sea anemones and is home to all sorts of interesting sea life. A 15-minute walk along a tarred road to get there adds to the wild feeling of being away from everything.  Pack a picnic and spend the day enjoying the views and exploring this pristine piece of coastline.
