It's amazing how clear the water is. Not too cold either. When there is a lot of people swimming it can stir up a bit but still worth the trip

starting at the edge of the river and climbing into the outrigger canoe was great. You meander up the river around many bends looking down in the water seeing the fish. At the end you finish at a large blue whole, fresh water, here it is about 30 meters deep though does not look it. The spring water is cool... More

So beautiful and blue and gorgeous. We spent hours just floating and swimming and taking photos of the blue hole at Riri River. The canoe ride up the river was an added bonus!

to get to this blue hole we decided to rent a kayak from oyster island and paddle up ourselves. the journey was relaxing, peaceful and views were breathtaking. it definitely made us feel like we are lost in the jungle. when we headed up stream and the water became clearer, we could see schools of fish swimming around our kayak....

I visited this blue hole and it was magnificent. It was so deep and so clear! Was truly a paradise and something it looks like is only out of a catalogue. It is most definitely worth a visit.

A bumpy drive through the jungle then a clearing with this magical blue cool water with wonderful white clear bottom . You can jump in off the landing or there is an area to the side where you can walk in. You can also kayak in from Oyster Island which is even more stunning with the jungle coming straight down...

Crystal Clear water and one of the biggest and best rope swings around. Fabulous place to cool off after a day at the beach.

It's so hard to believe water can be this blue. We hired kayaks from Oyster Island and paddled across the channel to the entrance to the river, this is where the magic begins. It's a 45 minute paddle but not hard going....make sure you take in the tranquility as you paddle. When you round the final bend the sight before... More
