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.

Lovely area for swimming, free diving or in my case Scuba Diving. Good trek to the entry point in gear but well worth it. Very interesting dive. Enjoy.

I wished I had a chance to dive the blue hole but unfortunately the winds were too high causing massive waves. this natural wonder is so amazing to see. it can be scary climbing the rocks to get a good view and I recommend you act cautious.

Visited the blue hole as part of a tour. Beautiful place. We were unable to take the boat journey because of the high winds.
