We had an amazing visit to this blue hole in Santo. We had visited a blue hole near Port Vila but nothing prepares you for the beauty of Santo's holes. We were astounded at the amazing brilliant colour. Even though it wasn't the sunniest and part of the hole was in the shade the colour blew us away. The water is so clean and clear that you can see the bottom some 12 - 16 metres deep. There weren't many people there, some didn't venture in so we almost had the place to ourselves. It was so peaceful and refreshing. We took our underwater camera in and had some fun taking photos of each other. The local ladies had a small market stall there and also gave us some fruit to eat. The toilets were quite acceptable.
A must see when in Santo.

This blue hole would have to be my favourite. It is by far the most blue and has excellent facilities. The little cafe is a great place to grab a bite to eat and a cup of hot milo, with a viewing deck where you can read a book and enjoy. Unlike Matevulu and Riri, there's no rope swing here, so it probably caters better to adults than families, which helps with the serene nature of the place. The whole area is well maintained and tastefully traditional, loved it and would definitely return!

There is a fee, we paid 1,000vatu for two people, not sure if its 500 each or a standard price.

One of the many blue holes that we visited on Santo, very well set up and well worth a visit. We went there as part of a group of people aged between 12-51 and we all enjoyed it immensely, the hole was pretty and even though the day was abit overcast it was still wonderfully blue and warm, the swing and the slide provided much fun and laughter and would definately say it's worth a visit.

This was the first blue hole we have ever seen and it was amazing. The colors are surreal. The water was crystal clear and the snorkeling view perfect. Lots of fish to see and interesting rock formations. The entry to the water is a bit slippery and difficult with uneven rocks, so must be done with care. The beautiful and colorful plants that surrounded the hole added to the ambiance of whole experience.
