My husband, 3 teenagers and our friends (with 2 children) all stopped here for a swim while in Vanuatu from our cruise ship. It was a hot day, so the clean, cold water was very inviting. There were also hanging ropes for anyone wanting to swing and drop into the water. And, the water in the blue hole is definitely... More

A must see in Santo, catch a local taxis (1000 vatu one way) and have a swim, worth a visit even for the view of a crystal clear blue water spring, entry fee 500 vatu at present

We kayaked from Oyster Island, where we were staying and it was one of the highlights of our stay! The paddle up the river is magical; watching the water become more clear and more blue as we got closer to the hole was spectacular. For a short time we had the hole to ourselves, and with the sun streaming through... More

So beautiful! We came on a tour and only have limited amount of time but the water was so beautiful and the swinging rope was definitely a challenge but worth it! I recommend coming here for anyone visiting santo

This is a must do, the locals will paddle you up to the blue hole and then it is amazing swimming there. There are a couple of rope swings and also easy stair access into the water. take a snorkel and flippers. Truly beautiful.

Lovely spot, easy 2-3hr activity from luganville. A great rope swing for the game people, but the skinny rope at the bottom is a danger, and needs to be carefully managed. We had several people end up with rope burns as the skinny string whipped up and wrapped around. It would be great if they could replace the whole rope... More

This is a great natural waterhole and certainly much better experience than the blue lagoon on Efate. Good rope swing and platform to jump off. Pretty well looked after. Old WWII runway on the way in on the right

Amazing place it's just to blue to be true warning the rope swing is a bit unsafe so use it at your own risk
