All the bus drivers know where it is located. From the entrance you have to walk 20 to 30 minutes through the forest. We recommend that you be there at 8:00AM to avoid the crowd and have the possibility to enjoy the view and a swim.


If you are a good hiker and have confidence walking on the rocks, we recommend to walk another 10 minutes up on the rocks to get to nicer spots.
