One aesthetic hike: Figure Eight Pools

Seriously love a good hike and clearly you do too if you're reading this or maybe you just like looking at some nice pics, regardless you're in for a treat. 

I’ve been really missing holiday hiking these past 5 months. Wherever I travel to, I always seem to end up going on a hike and yes, some on purpose and the occasional accidental one. There is no better feeling then finally reaching your destination and stopping to admire the beauty of nature and of course, yes,  I  totally enjoyed the walk along the way yadda yadda yadda.

A couple of weeks ago, I went on a hike to the Figure Eight pools located in Sydney’s Royal National Park. This particular hike has been on my sister’s bucket list for quite some time and due to the hike only being recommended during low tide, I can completely understand why.

I took a few photos a long the way and wanted to share it with all of you. It’s definitely a nice little spot to have a bit of light lunch and dip into the figure eight pools as well. When I first got there, the pool was tiny and not going to lie with the crashing of the waves so close by I was having a bit of a hard time exploring it further.

Taking that break to appreciate and admire

The walk down from the car park and  past the beach was seemingly easy, and if you’ve read the reviews from this hike, it is a STEEP hike back up. Every time I go swimming at the beach I’m always so tired by the end of the day and I honestly can’t imagine walking back up after a swim here or even at the beach you pass to get there.

Although it was steep, I managed to get through it with only a couple of breaks (I’d like to thank my HIIT workouts)  and my advice is really just to breathe while you stride through it. The rocks do get a bit slippery at times, so please be careful where you step, but overall a hike I would do again, even that long bumpy road just to get to the car park.

I’ve also linked the site we used to navigate our way here and Happy Friday everybody, hoping we all enjoy our weekends and stay safe as always.

See you all for the August bullet journal!I can’t believe I actually typed that!
