Like an elevator shift in a pond, this natural blue hole goes down over 600 feet in a small bay. Spectacular sand beach and a rough trail up the Cliffside behind the bay. No amenities at all. Rough road in from Long Island's main highway, limited signage. Read and head the sign with warning for weak swimmers. Please pack your... More

Amazing place, but there is trash all over. It is sad to see such a world famous place with nobody caring for it.

It was a little windy when we were there, so it was very clear. Not many fish or coral, just a dark, creepy hole! Glad that I went however.

We spent a couple hours here. Climbed all over the rocks. Then went snorkeling. Finally, after we were there for hours someone else finally showed up. Just other tourists. Really a great spot and a must see when on Long Island.

This is such a unique destination to view and experience... We even jumped off the ridge and into the water.

It may have been bumped to the second deepest blue hole in the world, but it is still a cool place to explore. Go se it. There is a sign from the Queens highway, the turn is across the street from Loyd's sports lounge. Take the dirt road east all the way to the end and go right. Can't miss... More

This is the second Blue Hole we have been to. The first being in Belize. What is amazing about this 600 foot or so blue hole is you can drive to it. Bring a swim suit, driving equipment or snorkel. A good trip!

We were going to snorkel the blue hole. But the wind was very strong. So we opted for climbing the hill and looked down into it. Very cool place to check out and explore.

It is a must on this Island and to get the best View you need to climb up the Hill a bit, however you should also snorkel over the hole.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've visited so far. Miles of pristine white sands. The shoreline is shallow for wading; however, we were advised that there is a dramatic drop at the blue hole that where only experienced swimmers should venture. In comparison to the calm shoreline and the blue hole, the raging ocean can be seen in the... More
