You may think photos of Riri Blue Hole are computer manipulated until you see this attraction--in reality pictures do not do this blue hole justice. Created from a spring of fresh water bubbling up through limestone, this site boasts shockingly blue water surrounded by lush jungle. Bring snorkel gear and follow fish around the hole, or jump off rope swings poised over the water. The journey to the hole involves paddling canoes upriver to the site. Remember to take water shoes for walking on the dead coral surrounding the hole. Riri Blue Hole is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
Riri Blue Hole Reviews
Very friendly locals, well kept with ladies raking leaves and sweeping the whole time we visited. Very nice that we had the pool to ourselves too, for at least some of our visit. However we felt that.... more »
500vt entry fee. Breathtaking view and what a wonder to visit. Only a few people were there so we had plenty opportunities to take good photos. Highly recommended more »
Absolutely Stunning. Splurge the extra 500 Vatu and get the canoe ride up the river to the Blue hole. Cool, crystal clear water, a rope swing and an amazing tropical setting. This was a standout spot on my trip to Vanuatu
Forget the tours. Negotiate with a taxi- Roundtrip from Luganville about 3,000 vatu (don't pay until you're brought back to town). 20 min drive each way, you'll get dropped off at a bridge, you'll see canoe guides waiting. 1,000 vatu per boat (ask for (15 min paddle each way) Roundtrip as it was the same price.) Go on a sunny day, makes a big difference. Water is chilly, lots of fish in shallow areas (bring reef shoes) but in deep parts low visibility. "Bar" was a tiny covered area, no one there when we went. They have a changing area. We did the round trip paddle and snorkeling and saw enough in an hour and a half. Definitely don't go when a cruise ship is in town. Pretty expensive in all, enjoyed the jungle feel to the river more than blue hole.
