Stunning natural feature. The World's deepest marine hole at over 200 metres. Not spoiled by any commercialism. We were able to walk and paddle around (not too close). Amazing !

Loved this, swam over the blue hole, amazing little beach. There were divers there and it was really neat to watch them go down as they were training. We were with a group of kids and I had my 6 year old and she swam out there. It does just dip immediately so if you aren't paying attention and not... More

This is the deepest blue hole in the world and it's such a unique pace to visit. you literal can walk all around it (the water is that shallow) and 30 feet in front of you is the opening to a 663 feet underwater cave that is dark and ominous. There are cliffs around the north side of the blue... More

I had never been to a blue hole before and really didn't know what to expect. It's quite an amazing thing I am half I took the time to go and look. I understand you can dive there with a local instructor Kevin James - that would be amazing

It's a bit eerie, but worth seeing! The beach isn't great, but snorkeling over the blue hole is really why you go. We brought our own snorkeling gear and were the only ones there (we traveled during slow season).

Glad I went but the hole itself is creepy.It is very pretty especially when you look down on it from the little trail you can take above. However, it took every bit of courage I had to swim across it to the dock that's in the middle of it(for the divers) Maybe I was also getting the heebeejeebies knowing that... More

One of these wonders of the world and so easy to join. This place is really one of the most beautiful place of the Bahamas Islands. But please respect the place, preserve this peaceful area for the future. A quiet and marvelous time on Long Island.

This is an excellent spot. It's a must see if you plan on visiting the island, and even worth the drive if you are staying on the north part of the island, in which case it can take about an hour and a half to get there. Excellent waters, kind of creepy in a way where the hole plunges into... More
