Amusement Park
“ The Nanda Blue Hole (also known as Jackie's Blue Hole or Jacquie's Blue Hole) is often referred to by visitors as the most beautiful blue hole in Vanuatu. The water is a magical deep blue that has to be seen to be believed. Blue Holes are an amazing natural creation, formed by springs of fresh pure water rising to the surface cutting out a deep hole in the limestone. The blue hole surrounds have been specifically designed for day trippers, with a large under cover area, a bar with beer and soft drinks, picnic area and a swing with a platform.”
