“It has to be seen to be believed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Traveller photos just simply do not do this blue hole justice. It is simply stunning!

Entry was 1000 Vatu per car so not bad really. We arrived at the hole late afternoon and had the place to ourselves!

I can imagine that this place gets extremely busy on a hot day, particularly when the Cruise Ships are in port.

It is a beautiful spot to spend a few hours and bring your own lunch if you can.

If in Santo, you simply have to visit a blue hole. We chose this one as recommended by our driver and were not disappointed at all.

“Blue hole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

A lovely trip with no-one else around and the pool to ourselves and our guide's 9 year old. The water was so clear and a beautiful colour, and the canoe ride to get there was very pleasant.

“spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

absolutely stunning, well worth the relaxing & scenic kayak trip up the stream. We went with a group from Bokissa island and the day was fabulous. Delicious lunch. Very relaxing. Interesting fish. You've seen nothing like it!

“Something Different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This was a great place to swim and play in. SO clear and different to most other fresh water spots. Loved the water swing too, something different.

“Fantastic swimming hole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Liked the Beach, snorkelling, diving, food, people. Champagne beach is the best beach. Oyster Island and Aore Island are worth a trip, they are both very welcoming places. Food is excellent on Aore.
