Blue Hole, Ocho Rios

#2 of 43 in Nature in Jamaica
Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
A turquoise swimming hole in the hills of Ocho Rios, Blue Hole remains a secluded and relatively untouristed hidden gem. Splash and swim to your heart's delight in this refreshing natural pool at the base of a pristine waterfall. The area has few amenities, so bring your own essentials and wear shoes appropriate for uneven terrain. First-time visitors should bring a guide to negotiate the slippery terrain and point out safe (and unsafe) diving spots. While Jamaica's larger tour companies rarely take visitors to this unofficial attraction, many of the smaller local operators offer guided walks that include stops at the waterfall. For Blue Hole and beyond, use our Ocho Rios tour itinerary builder site to get the most from your Ocho Rios vacation.
