Pool of Siloam

The Pool of Siloam can be found along the Bowman Scene Drive.

The Pool of Siloam is reputed to be seven times saltier than the sea and is very popular with visitors and locals who come here for a swim throughout the year.

Due to its salt content, the Pool of Siloam is very buoyant. Locals also come here regularly for health reasons, as the water is believed to relieve aches and pains for those suffering from arthritis. The pool is in a sheltered area, so it is perfect for those learning to swim and for children.

The pool has a range of visitor facilities, including changing rooms, cold water showers, toilets, and a picnic area. It is free to use.

The pool is one of the many highlights of the Bowman Scenic Drive. So, after you finish with a relaxing dip, hop in the car, drive along the coast, and check out the many highlights of Beachport, including Martin Light House, which was constructed in 1960.

Look out over the sea, and you can view the remains of an old lighthouse built in 1877. Penguin Island can be seen in the distance which today is a wildlife sanctuary and breeding ground for penguins, fur seals and seagulls.

Other attractions include McArthur Place, Backler’s Lookout, and Downs Lookout, which offer spectacular views. Make a stop at Salmon Hole, a popular fishing spot.
