Located in the hills of Ocho Rios, the Blue Hole, also known as Island Gully Falls or Secret Falls, is one of Jamaica’s hidden treasures. Characterized by its turquoise waters, stunning cascades, and lush surrounding greenery, the Blue Hole allows visitors a chance to swim, cliff jump, or explore caves for an adventurous and refreshing Jamaican natural experience.

Getting There The Blue Hole is situated roughly a 20-minute drive from downtown Ocho Rios. Public transportation in Jamaica may not provide the easiest access to the site, so your best option would be to hire a taxi or arrange a guided tour that includes transportation.


  1. Water Activities: Dive into the Blue Hole’s natural pool and swim in the crystalline, cerulean waters. The site is also well-known for cliff jumping.
  2. Hiking and Exploration: Visitors can explore small caves or traverse the rocks alongside the cascades for a mini-hike, immersing themselves in the stunning tropical scenery.
  3. Photography: The combination of brilliantly colored waters and vibrant, lush greenery offers excellent photo opportunities, perfect for capturing your Jamaican adventure.

Tips & Advice

  1. Arrive Early: To avoid crowds and enjoy the Blue Hole’s serenity, try to visit as early in the day as possible.
  2. Safety Precautions: Be cautious while moving around wet and slippery areas. The rocks can be particularly precarious, and the water in the Blue Hole is quite deep.
  3. Things to Bring: Wear a swimsuit and bring a towel, water shoes to protect your feet, and waterproof cases for your electronic devices.
