Well worth the entry fee (2000Vatu) - Nanda Blue Hole is breathtaking and the best of the local blue holes! Bring your goggles to properly explore.

An experience worth doing, never had a chance before to jump into a blue hole! Clear blue water so you can see the fish that keep you company but they disappear once your in, a good fun thing to do during a visit to Santo.

... make you feel comfortable to swim on it. Very deep and clean, it is just like a dream. The water seems to be very heavy and you get tired very fast to swim on it.

Definitely worth a visit!! So blue and crystal clear water. There is an entrance fee ($50 per car from memory) but if you go with a tour that is usually covered.

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
