Dean’s blue hole is located next to Clarence town, in Long
Island, Bahamas. The island which is inhabited by only 3,000 locals is a place
that is unspoilt by tourism.
It is also much less touristic than the main islands of
Bahamas, New Providence and Grand Bahama, but there are enough facilities for
Getting to the Dean’s blue hole is not an easy task. First,
you will have to book a flight to the capital of Bahamas, Nassau.
The main airport of Bahamas is served by many international carriers all year round.
Afterwards, you will need to fly to Long Island, to Deadman's Caye Airport (DMC). There are two
airlines operating flights daily: Bahamas Air and Southern Air.
Once you arrived at the airport, you are only 10 minutes away from the blue hole. Beware that
some flights make a stop to Stella Maris airport in the north of the island. In case your flight stops there, make
sure to not get off the plane.
From Deadman’s Caye Airport, you can take taxis that will take you to your accommodation. Once
arrived there, they will be able to help you further.
If you go there on your own with a car, you can access it through the Turtle Cove development.
You will have to locate a blue stone wall on the highway. You will have to take the road until its end and there
turn right on a dirt road. At the end of the dirt road, there will be a parking area; from there you will have to
walk to the beach.
