  • We did this on the way back from St. Herman's Cave. The water isn't blue at all. It's just a swimming hole. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

  • Great place to take a swim and relax! The hike to St. Hermans cave is great too, just bring the mosquito repellent! 😊👍
  • The swimming hole is nice and refreshing! The hummingbird loop needs some work, but wasn't too bad. The bathrooms and changing rooms were rather basic (as expected), but needed cleaned and restocked.
  • Beautiful place to hike and explore. The water looked amazing. The scenery was very green.
  • Whether hiking or just looking to take a dip, the beauty of the Inland blue hole can't be topped.
  • blue hole national park is a place where you can swimm in a very clear blue water hole! the water is a little bit chilly, fresh and sweet! i love it there!
