Great place to go and cool off in this amazing blue hole. Plenty of seating and shady areas to relax in after a refreshing swim. Put this place on your list to visit.

Great place for a swim, snorkel and general cool down from the Santo heat. We also had a kava making demonstration and tasting at the cafe followed by a very yummy traditional lunch of "Bunya" cooked by the locals.

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
