This was a lovely spot to escape the heat and humidity and was a welcome stop on the way to some other places in the region. Take lots of insect repellant. The Mosquitos are vicious! As there are no changing rooms here (although there is...More

A beautiful blue hole with modern toilet facilities for a mere 500vt per person. Amazing blue clear waters with a couple of fun rope swims. Personally my favourite blue hole, with access for Oyster Island resort via kayak or rubber ducky

This blue hole is very deep, crystal clear and access is easy. Pay when you enter and stay as long as you want to. Not too busy .

Great spot for a quiet swim in fresh water. Good way to directly support the local community too. We had the place to ourselves and it was stunning.

We were fortunate to miss the crowds from a cruise. The place was very beautiful, peaceful and natural. The rope was heaps of fun! The water was so clear, refreshing and natural. You could easily spend a couple of hours here relaxing.

This place is amazing. If you are in Santo for a Sunday, I would recommend getting public transport to oyster island in the morning (they have free kayak hire on Sunday) and then kayaking up to the blue hole. It's quite a decent paddle but...More

We stayed at Oyster Island so this trip is a "no-brainer". Even if not staying at Oyster Island I recommend going over (2 minute ferry ride) and renting kayaks. Five minutes across the sea and then about 45 minutes up river to the blue hole....More

Better to go to Blue hole from Santo. When you get to Champagne Bay you will not want to go anywhere else for the day but there!!! 😎
