Riri Blue Hole, Luganville

4.7
#4 of 14 in Outdoors in Espiritu Santo
You may think photos of Riri Blue Hole are computer manipulated until you see this attraction--in reality pictures do not do this blue hole justice. Created from a spring of fresh water bubbling up through limestone, this site boasts shockingly blue water surrounded by lush jungle. Bring snorkel gear and follow fish around the hole, or jump off rope swings poised over the water. The journey to the hole involves paddling canoes upriver to the site. Remember to take water shoes for walking on the dead coral surrounding the hole.

    We arrived after driving around the island on quads. We were hot and this refreshing stop was fantastic. There were only a few others there so it was very special. The water is very blue.  more »

Where to stay in Espiritu Santo

You'll find most of Espiritu Santo's accommodations clustered in the southeastern corner of the island, where the city of Luganville offers everything from basic beach houses and bungalows, to boutique hotels and upscale resorts. Luganville's city center boasts many hotels within walking distance of most local attractions and beaches, with quieter guesthouses an easy jaunt inland by car. Head up the eastern coast of the island to find beach lodges and sizeable resorts strung out along the shores of the Coral Sea. Due to the island's mountainous and forested interior, most areas away from the coast offer little other than family-run guesthouses and basic hotels, though these often offer budget-friendly deals.
