This hole is well worth stopping in for a refreshing swim. Good value for 500vtu. If you go early and make sure there is no cruise boats in you will have the place to yourself. Lots of fish to view up close

This is another great blue hole on the east coast. I liked the Tarzan swing rope especially. Not as developed here as Nanda Blue Hole.

It was Blue, there is no arguement there. We ended up having the whole place to ourselves on the morning of our visit. The water was still very murky after the small hurricane that had made an appearance a few weeks earlier so it wasn't...More
