The hike to Mermaids Pools is very easy and ideal for families and groups. It's about 30 minutes of trekking.The trail is situated in a very quiet village at Thomas Trace, Matura. Prepare for an enthralling trek along a wide dirt road that eventually leads through an abandoned Pine Forest. Maneuver carefully along natural forest.

At a juncture along the Pine Forest, veer right and single file into a very narrow trail that leads to the final trek on a steep downhill walk to the river bank of a large, beautiful, and enchanting "Mermaid Pool".  Welcome!!!  


Life jackets will be provided upon request. Ropes and other safety devices will also be on hand.
