Why locals love it

A natural spring fills this outdoor pool on the western end of Thomazeau. On any given day you might find children swimming, women and girls doing laundry, and a gaggle of young men sitting around the concrete picnic benches drinking beer and playing checkers. The pool itself has a concrete outer rim with moss-covered steps down on two sides.

Why you should visit it

This outdoor plaza features the natural spring pool as it's main attraction but to the side there are also changing rooms and a series of concrete picnic tables for lunch or impromptu parties. The pool has a rocky bottom with small fish inside. Watch for glass! Children enjoy jumping off the large tree stump into the not-so-deep end.

Special tip

Buy a lunch plate in town before you get to the spring, otherwise you have to travel for another five minutes by car (veer to the left) for food.
