This is an amazing waterhole with beautiful blue clear water. It's not flash, but is a great spot. I'm a bit older and enjoyed my swim, but younger people and kids were having a better time on the rope swings and snorkelling.

We spent a few hours here and had a great time. The kids loved the rope swing into the crystal blue water. There were also places to lay on the sand and just relax. There was a little hut selling drinks and snacks. $5 entry fee. Fairly good for a cool spot to relax.

It's really blue and clean. You may look at it, swim in it, jump into it. Usually it is quiet place with no more than several people. If you stay in Oyster Island resort, you can get here on kayak by the river. Entrance is VUV 500 per person.

We enjoyed a swim in this blue hole very pretty and worth the effort of paddling from Oyster Island. It was quiet when we arrived and we were able to snorkel - the colour of the water was amazing. The facilities are well kept .

Took the kids here after lunch and we all just loved it. The new swing was great and the cost at $5 per person reasonable. While very basic facilities a worth while visit on a hot day.

Spectacular swimming hole that had lots of friendly locals. My children loved climbing the tree and using the swing rope. You could spend hours here. Pictures really don't do the place justice- go see it for yourself. You will not be dissapointed. Santo really is a beautiful island - blues holes, Champagne Beach, one of the best wreck dives in...

Kayak to Matevulu from Oyster Island Resort to get the full impact of this stunning place. The colours and sounds are unbelievable and it is the definition of pristine.
