If you are in the area it's worth the time to take a look they say the water has healing powers it's a nice area to take some pictures and read up on what created the hole you can walk around the hole and take a look at the different views we were there September 9 2014

interesting. but more than 10 min and you will be bored. bring bread for fish. Tropical fish jump for it. A couple of very pretty tropical fish varieties there. Certainly stop if you are headed this way, but dont make it a destination.

We found this out of the way place, it was very interesting. The park had 3 wild goats by the pavilion, one was on the top of the picnic table. The different fist was very close to our edge and the water very clear.

We visited and had fun watching the local boys dive over our heads into the water. They were great and sweet. We stopped by the little candy and ice cream stand down the street and had some great pastries and ice cream.

Eleuthera is a very relaxing place. Not much to do. So we took a day to drive the island and check out the local sites. Was curious to see this Ocean hole. It is a big hole of water in the middle of a neighborhood. We jumped from multiple spots above the water and had fun. It is very deep... More

This was a nice visit, although I didn't stay long. There was a family with a good amount of kids enjoying the ocean hole and wanting to jump in the water. We all threw food to the fish and some of the fish would jump right out of the water. Be careful when going there though, as I missed the... More

Get a bag of bread and spend ten minutes feeding the fish. The Ocean Hole is surrounded by a nice park. Maybe stop and eat your picnic lunch. This is a place to stop on your way to someplace elese, not a destination.

Water is cool and clear and fish are fun to watch and swim with. Snorkel to get the best view of them feeding and be sure to jump from the surrounding rocks for the full effect. Stay a short while or for the afternoon. Picnic tables available around the perimeter.

Nice little side trip. It's easy to find, lots of signs to direct you and a cute park surrounding it. Lots of porkfish and snapper with one trunkfish and a few angelfish and tangs. It's nice in the water but more fun to watch the feeding from above. The water is pretty clear so you can see all the fish... More
