  • The color of the water was so beautiful. Simply because of where the blue hole is located.
  • Cool place to see the water is breath taking
  • Amazing but cold
  • This place is breathtaking. Had fun jumping off of the cliff
  • Jump the 20 feet down into the crystal clear blue water! This is one of the many blue holes on Eleuthera. All blue holes are connected deep underground to the surrounding ocean, usually many hundreds of watery feet down. So deep, in fact, that fish are unable to swim the distance and as a result, there are no fish here (the fish in the Ocean Hole in Rock Sound were stocked there). In addition, blue holes change depth with the tides and are always salt water. This one is plenty deep to jump or dive into, so go for it! The climb out may look daunting, but is assisted by a couple of sturdy ropes with knotted handholds. Even without the ropes, it is a relatively easy climb out as there are many hand and footholds to help you out. This is a must-stop on any day trip to the area that includes Preacher's Cave and beach.
