Inland snorkelling in blue holes
Take your Vanuatu snorkelling experience inland and swim across a blue hole. Blue holes are most common on Santo, where fresh water from the rain flows through limestone caves in the volcanic mountains, resulting in underground streams. The streams resurface closer to the coast and form unique fresh water springs or, as they’re more commonly referred to, a blue hole! While swimming and water sports are more common in blue holes than snorkelling, there are unique life forms that tend to inhabit these stunning natural phenomenons.
