Riri Blue Hole, Luganville

4.7
#4 of 17 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. Riri Blue Hole is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Espiritu Santo Edition.

  • To do if you want to stop in a small corner of paradise without too many tourists (attention however to the days when cruise lines are on the island).

  • Friendly locals and the most beautiful clear blue water. Have a swim, swing from the ropes. Relax.
  • Stunning place that is a must see when in Santo. You'll get the best value if you tour around the main spots for a while daddy trip but if you only have half a day free then this is worth visiting as it's closest to Luganville. If you have snorkel or beach shoes better bring them with you as the rocky area can have really sharp stones that can hurt.
  • Loved this blue hole experience. They also have two swings that you can use to dive into the water. Totally worth a visit.
  • Loved it, amazing colours and such a great swimming place.
  • Beautiful.
