  • This is a wonderful place as it is situated just 200 ft. off the Hummingbird Highway. It is a sinkhole filled with water that reaches to unknown depths. You can bring your bathing suits and take a dip in the warm water. From the blue hole is a trail leading to St. Herman's Cave, an extensive cave system.
  • Right off the road, not too packed, water is cold but its very relaxing! Great place to hang out & swim for a bit.
  • Nice place to take in nature and a swim. The water is COLD. If you bring some bread the fishes will come right to the surface to grab the pieces of bread. On a Saturday morning there were on about 8 people at the hole.
  • Lovely place to cool off in a humid tropical day
  • It's amazing that you can go to a place like this on the side of the road. Water was so refreshing, and it's really paradise!
