Enjoy a relaxing day at beautiful Lonnoc beach. En-route to Port Olry, this beach makes a lovely picnic and swimming spot with crystal clear water and fine powder of white sand you wont want to leave. Make sure you give yourself time to stop off at the Blue Hole for refreshing swim on the way home. You will be amazed at the colour and clarity of these fresh water natural swimming pools!

Being independent and usually hiring a vehicle wherever we travel, this trip to Santo for a few days we decided to let somebody else do the driving. Willie from Paradise Tours picked us up from Coral Quays on time at 0900. There was just Willie and the two of us for the whole day, no time limit. Nothing was planned... More

He drove us then to Riri Blue Hole for a swim $5 each entry. There were large crowds at the Blue hole with... More

We were met at the dockside by Luke, who introduced Lino, our personal guide for the day. Lino is fluent in 4 languages - French, English, Pidgin and his own... More

I arranged this tour for a 16 from a cruise ship. It was for the RiRi canoe trip. The tour operator was waiting as we disembarked. The canoe trip to the Blue Hole was lovely, was the Blue Hole. However, I was very disturbed about our group being left there for 1 1/2 hours past the time we were told... More

We did the Riri River tour. We were on a cruise ship and were picked up and taken to a craft shop on the way. We had 14 in our group, and when we arrived at the river we were put into groups of 3-4 for the 20 minutes it took to get to the swimming hole. It literally was... More
