Crystal clear and cool blue spring water awaits here! There is a large rope that if you are game, can be taken up a tree ladder for a huge swinging jump into the water. The water is very deep and the shallows around the entry into the water is quite small, and so not a great place for non-swimmers to... More

When you swim here, there's a VT500 Kastom Owner fee (Au$6), which helps the land owner cover the costs of keeping the facility clean and and resist the big money offered by developers. Please pay it happily.

This was a lovely spot to escape the heat and humidity and was a welcome stop on the way to some other places in the region. Take lots of insect repellant. The Mosquitos are vicious! As there are no changing rooms here (although there is a small toilet block) I would suggest bringing a large towel or changing into swim... More

We went on a Sunday morning and used kayaks from oyster island and did the buffet at 1pm after visiting the hole. Paddle takes about 45mins to get to there and a slow paddle/float back down stream took 30mins. The rope swing is a must do! 500vt entry fee.

A beautiful blue hole with modern toilet facilities for a mere 500vt per person. Amazing blue clear waters with a couple of fun rope swims. Personally my favourite blue hole, with access for Oyster Island resort via kayak or rubber ducky

This blue hole is very deep, crystal clear and access is easy. Pay when you enter and stay as long as you want to. Not too busy .

Great spot for a quiet swim in fresh water. Good way to directly support the local community too. We had the place to ourselves and it was stunning.
