All of the three blue holes are lovely, this one was not quite as well maintained as the other two when we visited but still absolutely stunning.

You pay just for driving in whether you swim or not. The guy was very aggressive and intimidating and demanded that we pay. We had a wonderful time at Matevulu and Nanda where we were made to feel welcome. Give this one a miss there...More

This blue hole is perfect. From the canoe ride leading up the hole to the rope swings it is really a paradise. This hole has less people than Nanda so at times you are the only people here. It is also quite large so you...More

One of the many blue holes across the Vanuatuan islands.. I was canoed up river. Hauntingly quiet and pristine clear water. Overhanging trees and vegetation around every corner of the river until we reached the Blue hole at the end... Swimming and diving spots abound...More

We were on a bike ride and called in here for a swim. There was nobody else there and it was stunning! Great spot for a refreshing swim

Few facilities and not really much to see especially given the entrance fee that is collected even if you don"t swim. Give it a miss.

We were there on independence day and it was the blue hole for just us, it was sunny and the water really blue. A tad cold the water for me but I rather have warm water. Recomendable.

Loved this waterhole (my favourite so far). The locals running it were quiet but very hospitable. The water itself is so clear and fairly deep in some parts. There are a couple of rope swings and some boats which make for great photos. There was...More

Hi Maria. You can hire a taxi driver for the day to take you there. The entrance fee was 500 vatu per person at Riri. Just as a side note, Riri isn't the nicest blue hole, Nanda and Matevulu are better. I say that because... More
