Despite its name, there are absolutely no alligators or nests at this rainforest pool. Nor are there crocodiles, for that matter. What you will find, however, is a clear and refreshing swimming spot surrounded by lush rainforest.

If you spend the night in Mission Beach, this is an ideal day trip to add to your itinerary. Stop at The Pocket in El Arish for fresh coffee and picnic supplies before making your way through the backroads of Feluga to the stunning swimming hole. Alligators Nest is best enjoyed on a warm day after a fresh downpour of rain. Thankfully, the tropics are filled with incredible days like that.
