Just a great experience to dive into the blue hole with its cavern and see how the light glows in a deep blue from above! Then diving through the underwater arc and beneath the great arc is spectacular. Thanx Calypso Diving Center Crew

We were told this feature might crumble into the sea before long. Take swimming gear to make the most of this visit

This is a lovely place to be when the sun is going down. Quite romantic and a must-see. Not crowded when we went in July.

Public transport right to the site. Shop and few market stalls. Very uneven on rocks to get a good view. Busy.

Take your time to walk around and really enjoy this area. There is lots to see and some great photo opportunities. This is a not-to-be-missed site. Pay attention to the fossils in the rocks. Bring good walking shoes and take time to climb around the rocks.
