The road was very bumpy getting there but so worth it. There were scuba divers along with snorkelers in the water. We snorkeled and saw a lot of interesting fish. There was a beach for enjoying the view and just swimming. Hiking down the beach was beautiful but difficult because the sand was so soft.

I'm not a diver, so I won't review the Blue Hole. But the beach itself is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! Tons of shades of blue, calm water, the view of the Blue Hole from above... Unforgettable!

Very special place not to be missed. If you dive it is definitely worth to do it there or just snorkel

It's out of This World. The beach at the blue hole is most awesome. The whole place is spectacular and special to me. One must visit Long Island Bahamas and see and swim in Deans Blue Hole

Dean's blue hole is extremely peaceful with almost no crowds. Makes for better appreciation of its awe

Caution is a good watchword for snorkelers, swimmers and hikers around Dean's Blue Hole. It is the deepest blue hole in the world,over 600 ft and the scenery is striking & the beach a sugar sand. But the limestone rock around the hole is crumbly and on the day we snorkeled around the hole the wind was strong and there... More

Stunning place to visit, great beach, good shell hunting and snorkeling as long as the seas aren't rolling in past the reefs

This place is awesome, nature serving it up at it's finest. Go and jump off the cliff, go and don't jump off the cliff; you will love it either way. If you jump off the cliff wear your flip flops up and throw them down before you take the plunge. The beach nearby is incredible, walk a few hundred yards... More

Beautiful natural wonder! the beach is lovely and you can do a lot of swimming without going over the deep hole. Climbing on the cliff is not recommended as the underside curves in and often crumbles. That is how a whole family ended falling in and some drowning.

...worth the drive from the north part of the island. Be sure to bring snorkel gear and don't be afraid to venture up to the top as there are amazing views up there!
