  • The Ocean Hole is a small salty water lake. It is connected to the sea somewhere else. There were fishes and the story if its founding was interesting.  more »
  • This is worth a brief stop if you are in or passing through the area. I would concur with others that I wouldn't find it worth a long drive out of your way if you had no other reason to be in the area...  more »
  • This is a neat stop if you are already passing through Rock Sound but I wouldn't make the trip otherwise. Nice for swimming and some cool fishes but I was disappointed by the amount of trash in an aro...  more »

  • Here is one of the most amazing place ever! When we go there, the woman who live near by here said you can swim in the hole! We had swim gear, so we did. In the hole, there are a lot of kinds fishes!! The hole is connecting to outside sea through underground clacks. But you have to notice because the hole is deep. The depth is 180m over. I felt scary and feeling to be aquarium exhibits. If you are in Bahamas and think enough to see Harbor Island, it is wrong. Here has a power of feeling a naked Bahamas, I think.
  • Must see sight and make sure you bring some bread scraps to feed the fish. Also great spot for jumping in and having a swim.
  • Great place to swim and jump off the rocks into the water! Must visit again!
  • Super cool place to visit. Locals and visitors feed the fish so there are a whole bunch hanging out at the entrance to the water that will swim with you. Water clarity wasn't great when I was there making it a bit murky to snorkel in. Neat natural phenomenon.
  • So cool! So many fish! A small cliff to jump from. the very top is freshwater but if you swim far enough down it becomes salt water
