Dis­cov­er the spring-fed lime­stone ponds at the Ewens Ponds Con­ser­va­tion Park by snorkelling along the shal­low chan­nels or scu­ba div­ing into the ponds.

The chan­nels con­nect three basin-shaped ponds which are approx­i­mate­ly 10 metres deep. The clar­i­ty of the water enables plants to grow under­wa­ter to a depth of about six metres. Some of these plants are not found grow­ing ful­ly sub­merged under­wa­ter any­where else in the world.
