We happened to visit Dean's blue hole on the day a diver was attempting (successfully) to set the free diving world record. After the camera crews left, we had the entire place to ourselves. An amazing place.

Wow, this hole reported to be the deepest in the world, is so close to the beach you could reach from the beach and touch it. Somewhat daunting for people not accustomed to blue holes, but lots of sea life and just amazing to see nature at work.

Deep Blue hole where they hold free-diving competitions. Love this place. Snorkeling is great. You have to jump off into the hole from the side.

We stopped by after visiting a gorgeous,turquoise beach at the other end of this road crossing Queens Highway. There was a diving team training people or just having a good time while we were there. Beach was pretty.

Dean's Blue Hole is something I have never seen before. It is beautiful & breath- taking. If you visit this place, be sure to bring your snorkel mask so that you can see the beautiful colored fish in the Blue Hole.

Absolutely amazing beach! Not a place to scuba dive. Just gorgeous beach. Make sure you and your family know how to swim before you get close to the hole. There is some current - not strong but dangerous enough to drag you in if you don't know how to swim.
