A trip to Green Canyon involves hiring a boat for a short ride up a narrow gorge, passing incredible scenery and ending up at a stunning rock pool where it's possible to go for a swim in the turquoise water.
This place is packed on weekends and holidays, and the crowds do detract from the beauty of the place. But come on an off day and it's possible to have the whole magical place to yourself.
Boat drivers insist on a 45-minute time limit at the pool, but this can easily by extended by negotiation, especially when it's quiet.
For those seeking a bit of adventure, a flying fox zips across the river at the boat embarkation point.
