Dean's Blue Hole, Clarence Town

4.7
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Long Island
The world's deepest known salt water blue hole, Dean's Blue Hole is a spectacular sight and yours to explore from land or water. A deep abyss plunges 202 m (663 ft) into the ocean's bed within a calm turquoise lagoon, a memorable spot for snorkelling and a beautiful site from the surrounding cliffs. Snow white sands surround the bay and lead to the dramatic underwater drop, its diameter starting at around 30 m (98.4 ft) and after a short descent widening to a cavernous 100 m (328 ft) mouth. Within the twinkling depths, shoals of tarpon, ray, and seahorse play as you make your way through this eerily mesmerising natural wonder. A visit to Dean's Blue Hole represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Long Island itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    This truly one of the natural wonders of the world. A visit to the Bahamas is not complete without a visit to DBH

    Incredible view and awesome swimming spot if you are visiting the Bahamas. It's a very short drive on some very rough roads but is well worth it and if you're lucky you may see a Marlin swimming up from the depths.

    There is a trail that passes over top the hill above the hole. Did I also mention there's a small cave along the way... just big enough to crawl into
