White Hole is a unique dive site because of the enormous hole in its reef. The size is approximately 120 by 75 meters. White Hole is named after the the bottom of the hole, which mainly consists of white sand. To reach the hole you have to cross a reef and an sand plateau. It's is inhabited by large tarpons while the reef itself is home to stingrays, moray eels, barracudas and turtles.

Particulars

Park at the fisherman's cabin south of Sorobon Beach Resort. Then you'll have to wade 200 meters through shallow water, cross a spit of land and pass an uneven bottom between fire corals and sea urchins. A boat dive is therefore recommended. In the White Hole itself you'll find several beautiful caves and crevices.

Warnings

Dive with a local guide an preferably by boat. The dive site remains shallow for a long time.
