Hidden within the breathtaking San Blas Archipelago, Morodub Island or BBQ island is known locally as "The Swimming Pool" due to its crystal-clear, turquoise waters and serene surroundings. The clarity is a result of the shallow sandbar that is just beneath the water's surface. This proximity of the sand to the surface allows for the waters to remain exceptionally clear, providing an unobstructed view of the seabed and the marine life beneath.
The Natural Swimming Pool
What sets Morodub Island apart is its natural swimming pool. The island is encircled by a shallow sandbar, creating a large, tranquil pool in the middle of the sea. This unique formation is the result of the tide, which fills the pool with pristine, warm seawater, providing a serene and safe place to swim, float, and relax. The incredible clarity of the water allows you to peer into the depths, making it feel as though you're swimming in a giant, natural aquarium.
As the day draws to a close on Morodub Island, visitors are treated to some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the world. The result is a kaleidoscope of colors that paint the sky in hues of orange, creating a mesmerizing spectacle that captures the hearts of all who witness it, even on a cloudy day!
