Deepest Blue Hole is a free divers play ground. Nice beach surrounds the area and snorkel across the hole if you dare 😎

Probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. As one of our travel companions said, "...the water is 'Gin' clear.." The sand is powdery white and "the hole" itself is awe inspiring. If you are in Long Island, a visit to the Blue Hole is a must! We could have spent hours relaxing on the pristine, and... More

Sheltered swimming area with sandy beach, flat shallow area, deep blue hole in ocean floor full of tropical fish. 9 meter Cliff to jump off into deep water. Bring goggles or a mask and snorkel and swim suit. Bring footwear you can get wet. Swim across the shelf to find one of two reasonably easy paths up the sharp rocks... More

Like an elevator shift in a pond, this natural blue hole goes down over 600 feet in a small bay. Spectacular sand beach and a rough trail up the Cliffside behind the bay. No amenities at all. Rough road in from Long Island's main highway, limited signage. Read and head the sign with warning for weak swimmers. Please pack your... More

Amazing place, but there is trash all over. It is sad to see such a world famous place with nobody caring for it.

It was a little windy when we were there, so it was very clear. Not many fish or coral, just a dark, creepy hole! Glad that I went however.

We spent a couple hours here. Climbed all over the rocks. Then went snorkeling. Finally, after we were there for hours someone else finally showed up. Just other tourists. Really a great spot and a must see when on Long Island.

It may have been bumped to the second deepest blue hole in the world, but it is still a cool place to explore. Go se it. There is a sign from the Queens highway, the turn is across the street from Loyd's sports lounge. Take the dirt road east all the way to the end and go right. Can't miss... More

This is the second Blue Hole we have been to. The first being in Belize. What is amazing about this 600 foot or so blue hole is you can drive to it. Bring a swim suit, driving equipment or snorkel. A good trip!
