The Blue hole was exactly that, a gorgeous azure blue. Inviting to take a dip but very cold water. Beatiful natural setting, well worth a visit

Crystal clear blue waters, lots to see with a snorkel. We were the only ones there when we visited. Worth the $1000 entrance free, even got a free coconut drink.

Paradise tours seem to be the best and most reliable in Santo. Nanda blue is spectacular and you will have plenty of time to go to champagne beach and Port Olry
