Beautiful and eerie deep hole

Amazing place for swimming, on a stunning semi-circlular beach, good snorkelling around the perimiter of the hole

We stayed near Clarence Town for several weeks so we visited the Blue Hole several times. There is plenty of beach beyond the hole to walk on, clear shallow water to play in, the blue hole to swim in and over, hike up the rocks for a huge view, and jump off of the cliff if you dare. A couple... More

I was curious to see what people were saying about Dean's Blue Hole now since I experienced this back in 2001. Sounds like there's been no real change over the years since it's off the "beaten path" of tourism. My friend and I were the only ones there for the time that we visited. We snorkeled around and over the... More

I see another reviewer describes this sight as "subtle." That may be an understatement -- one sign on the main road, no concessions. When we visited, the beach was clean and welcoming. The water is so clear that, just standing in ankle deep water many fish are visible. For much of our family's visit, we were the only people there.... More

Have visited Dean's numerous times and advertising is extremely scarce and seeing more than ten people at one time is rare. There are no concessions and the gorgeous white sand surround is kept amazingly well groomed.

Not a great place to hang out. The only place I would call "crowded" on the island. Lots of trash strewn about. If you don't dive it's really nothing special.

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
