Absolutely stunning scenery, you can kayak from oyster island there and cool off here afterwards. The resort provides the kayak and water proof bags, and the journey is absolutely stunning. The actual blue hole has 2 rope swings and a ~4m Jump off a tree branch (wouldn't recommend these for young children as one of the rope swings comes from... More

Santos has at least 3 popular blue holes. Matevulu, Riri and Nanda. You can kayak to matevulu from oyster island or just drive there. I recommend kayaking. It's absolutely beautiful. The blue hole is really as blue as the the pictures and snorkelling there or just swimming is divine. It costs 500 vatu per person to get it but you... More

Any photos I have seen do not do these blue holes justice. There is nothing like diving into this beautiful clear water and watching the fish lazily swim past. Make sure you take your snorkel to fully appreciate the underwater beauty around you. We were lucky enough to have this spot to ourselves but make sure you don't visit when... More

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
