On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the 40 foot circular opening. Thus, the early settlers gave this dramatic setting the name Devil's Den. With year-round crystal clear water at 72 degrees, scuba divers and snorkelers flock to this site to enjoy this sun illuminated underground pool. Walking through a jasmine wrapped gated entrance and down a flight of concrete and wood stairs into the cavern pool this inverted mushroom shaped pre-historic spring has a 120 foot surface diameter and is a wonderful training site with very little silt and shallow depths that average 45 ft.
