One of the most beautiful beaches I've visited so far. Miles of pristine white sands. The shoreline is shallow for wading; however, we were advised that there is a dramatic drop at the blue hole that where only experienced swimmers should venture.

Turtle Bay, where the Blue Hole is, is absolutely beautiful. You can spend all day here! So restful and peaceful. The Blue Hole is fascinating but be careful. If you feeling energetic you can walk completely around the bay.

It is really breathtaking, it is also fun to jump off the top although it is a bit of a trek up there.

I did a 100 ft dive as a first-time dive in Deans. I wanted to see past the first rim and wow. Looking up, you'll see rings of aqua to the sky. Looking down, it's just navy blue blackness. Saw massive tarpon at 65 ft and the usual reef fish at 25.

We happened to visit Dean's blue hole on the day a diver was attempting (successfully) to set the free diving world record. After the camera crews left, we had the entire place to ourselves. An amazing place.

Wow, this hole reported to be the deepest in the world, is so close to the beach you could reach from the beach and touch it. Somewhat daunting for people not accustomed to blue holes, but lots of sea life and just amazing to see nature at work.

Deep Blue hole where they hold free-diving competitions. Love this place. Snorkeling is great. You have to jump off into the hole from the side.

We stopped by after visiting a gorgeous,turquoise beach at the other end of this road crossing Queens Highway. There was a diving team training people or just having a good time while we were there. Beach was pretty.
