This blue hole was bar far my favourite. The water is literally blue, and although the rope swing might not look the most sturdy and safe thing to do, man is it fun! Adrenalin rush and stunning scenery all in one! A must do for everyone staying in Santo. There is a fee, so just make sure you have 500... More

When visiting Santos make sure you visit one of the blue holes. Something I'd never experienced before and not likely to ever forget. We were on a P & O cruise that docked in Luganville and went on their Blue Hole and Northern Beaches shore tour with a small group of 14 people. The water was warm and pleasant for... More

Here you can beach your boats and enjoy swinging on a rope from a... More
