Visit the world renowned natural ‘blue hole’ of the Eleuthera Island, called The Ocean Hole. People say the hole is bottomless. The inland salt water lake formed in the hole has a link to the ocean. However, till today no connection has been found. Yet, the lake is always filled with sea water and sea- life. Tourists from distant places come here just to take a bath for a few minutes in this salt water. This is because the water is warm in temperature and is rumored to have healing power. You can come, have a nice bath and feed the fishes of the lake. However, picking them is strictly prohibited.
Besides, you also get to see various local birds nesting in the trees surrounding the lake.

The Ocean Hole Reviews & Ratings
Able to feed the fish and there is a great variety of fish there. Not for beginner/inexperienced swimmers.
Many different types of fish and sea life that you can come into close contact with. Don't forget to bring bread or something to feed them! Who knows... A fee turtles may pop up!
Al natural. Salt water rise and fall with the ocean tide. In the middle ol the land A swimming pool for the natives
An amazing natural swimming pool! Not to mention the friendly Rock sound kids that were there. If you are going to stop make sure you take a dip. It is so refreshing
Great stop in Rock Sound. You can swim in the clear water. There are 2 ladders to make exit easy and you can jump right in from the lookout. If you're not up for swimming bring a couple pieces of bread and you can feed the fish. They are use to being fed and will come right to the wall when you approach. Very cool.
