Nanda Blue Hole

East Coast Road, Natawa, Sanma Province Vanuatu, Vanuatu

The east coast of Santo is dotted with blue holes—freshwater marine pools that develop like sinkholes on land composed of limestone or coral reef. Nanda Blue Hole, also known as Jacquie’s Blue Hole after the landowner, is one of the most popular on the island, thanks to its captivating blue hue, accessibility for swimmers and beautiful green forest surroundings. The area also offers a bar, picnic area and boardwalk.

It’s one of the bluest on the Espiritu Santo island. You’ll see lots of fish in this natural fresh water spring. The site is well-constructed, has a picnic area and the water is a deep blue unlike no other.

There is an entrance fee of 500 Vatu about $5 USD, which includes a hot drink or a coconut from their cafe- well worth to spend at least half your day here.
