Great views from this location-you are about 150 feet up!

The road is passable, but I was glad we at least had a 2WD SUV. We did not swim in the tidal pool behind the monument, but should have, it was beautiful.

This is really an interesting place. It's hard to imagine an enormously deep hole forming here. The beach is nice and right next to it is a really deep hole. There was a decent current running toward the hole but nothing to worry about. On the edge of the hole are some fish to see while snorkeling. Climb the rocks... More

It is well worth the experience to visit Dean's Blue Hole even though it may take a bit of finding. While it may not seem like much on the surface, there are many videos that feature Dean's and give you an excellent idea of what it feels like to those take the challenge to dive as deep as they can...

We were excited to see our first Blue Hole, but after getting there we discovered that it was covered in sea grass which made it less appealing. I had thought we would get in the water and snorkel over to it, but with the leaves we decided not to. The sea grass was all over the beach area too. The... More

Over 660 foot deep hole and site of world free diving competitions. The whole cove offers sheltered swimming and snorkeling and walking on a nice sandy beach. It's quite awe inspiring to swim over the entrance to the blue hole and see it fall away to an amazing depth!

This attraction has a turn off at the Sports Bar and Restaurant. It is truly creepy snorkeling to the dive platform and watching the line go off to the abysis

The road was very bumpy getting there but so worth it. There were scuba divers along with snorkelers in the water. We snorkeled and saw a lot of interesting fish. There was a beach for enjoying the view and just swimming. Hiking down the beach was beautiful but difficult because the sand was so soft.

I'm not a diver, so I won't review the Blue Hole. But the beach itself is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen! Tons of shades of blue, calm water, the view of the Blue Hole from above... Unforgettable!

Very special place not to be missed. If you dive it is definitely worth to do it there or just snorkel
