Quick stop to feed fish

Great stop on the way to lighthouse beach. Bring old bread and feed the fish. We even snorkels with the fish to take some underwater pictures.

We stopped here on our way to Lighthouse Beach. The park has many picnic tables and a clean restroom. On our way back, we stopped to jump in. The friendly locals were decorating the park for their Regatta and Independence Day celebration. There were many fish - bring bread or crackers to feed them! The ladder must have just been... More

Great place to snorkel and feed tons of great fish. Easy access, free fun and no worries about sharks! Lots to see even if you don't get in the water.

Interesting place to visit, not much to it though. I wouldn't go swimming in it, and I don't trust the ladder.

We stopped here on the way back north after a long day and drive to Lighthouse Beach. Noticed a couple of handmade signs on Queens Highway in Rock Sound that said "Ocean Hole". Decided to investigate. It's not far off the main road. Had no idea what to expect but we pulled up to see three people jumping in off... More

It was kind of a neat little place, make sure you read the info about the ocean hole. We only had some rum cake and the fish seemed to love it!

Very unique place to visit. The area around it is run-down a bit. There was a ladder to get out of the hole itself, but it has been broken off. There is a knotted rope that someone has put up to help with getting out of the hole. The fish are very curious and will approach you in the water.... More

Located in the southern part of the island. Located right opposite Preston Albury school. You can bring bread to feed the fish, they aren't shy at all. One of my friends jumped into the hole and he said the water felt so nice.

This is a neat spot to visit towards the southern end of the island. My wife liked seeing all the fish, and while probably not good for their diet, we fed them bits of ships and bread. I doubt we're the only ones who've done this... probably a great site for kids.

We took the Eleuthera tour from Princess and this was the "premier" stop. Our guide had bread she was selling for $1 a slice to feed the fish. A few came to the surface, including some very pale angel fish. Otherwise, we just looked at a round pond. Maybe if you went on your own and had a chance to... More
