“You have to see the water to believe it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Crystal clear, aqua blue water. Makes you want to drive straight in and we did! Paddle a dugout canoe up the Riri Riri River for the full experience.

“Amazing piece of nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

This place is well worth a visit and really easy to get to. A swim in the sapphire waters is beyond refreshing on a tropical day. Remember to take a snorkel and goggles

“Gorgeous spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

I was driving on the East Coast Road in Santo when I noticed the sign about the Nanda Blue Hole. I stopped - entrance fee is 500 Vt per person and spent a few hours enjoying the place. You can swim - the water is incredibly transparent - and there is a slider and a swing rope. The water is a bit chilly but it's a fantastic experience. Jackie brings you fresh fruit and takes good care of his blue hole. Recommended!

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great spot for a swim in this beautiful (and very deep) "blue hole". Look to pay 500 Vatu per head (approx $5) as entry, but its worth it! Complimentary paw paw fruit was lovely. Water was cool, but don't let that stop you. Rope swing available (make sure you let go well past the rock) which was fun. Also available was a wooden slide (no splinters!) which also kept the kids (teenagers) entertained for some time. Recommend bringing a mask/snorkel to enjoy the clarity of the water.
Jacky takes great care to maintain the garden areas.
Highly recommended as a stop on your tour around Santo.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

The Blue holes are amazing! You simply have to see them to believe the colour of the water. There is a rope and a slide for the more adventurous or just enjoy swimming in the crysal clear blue water!
