After swimming at Champagne Bay and having a delicious lunch at Port Orly the third and last thing on the day's itinerary was to visit and swim at Santo's beautiful blue hole - so many fish and such crystal clear water - amazing!

Having visited three other blue holes on the east coast, this is the largest and deepest with fish to see while swimming.

The most amazing body of water I have ever seen. Clear, deep, cool and beautiful. Plenty of space to sit around on the platforms and easy access via steps.

Arrived water was cloudy but still went in I scuba dived the blue hole not much to see but enjoyed it anyway Suggest you ask if it is clear before you pay to visit as you could be disappointed

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.

This is the second time we had visited Nanda. Due to a cruise ship arrival the following day, the gardens were being well maintained and were very pretty. I recommend NOT to visit on a cruise ship day if you are staying on the island...More

... 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.

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
