One of the most beautiful dive sites ever. Definitely worth a visit to dive through from Belles through to the Blue Hole.

Best site for snorkeling compared to 3 pools and Ras Abu Gallum. I felt like being in a giant aquarium. Make sure you bring some shoes to swim with as you might hurt yourself while going into the water.The only negative remark about Blue Hole is that the layout is not very nice. There isnt any beaches and you only... More

Where else in the world can you jump into a 130m deep reef from the shore??? No boat, no travel...Just put your fins and jump. Also the Bells going down that chimeny to almost 30m depth was exciting. You gotta be PADI Advanced to do that folks....

Amazing coral reefs, but the blue hole is a bit scary, a small round circle that goes down to infinity, but hey i conquered my... More

Don't read the stories of other divers disasters before you go. It was absolutely incredible. Submerging into the hole only one diver at at time and then traversing along the edge - this dive site is a must.

Don't miss out on this one. It's a gorgeous experience. The Cleaner Wrasse are the best ;) Entry and exit points are not for the faint of heart. Expect a lot of snorkelers and divers at these points. It's always busy. But worth it :)
