It's readily accessible by snorkellers, but we entered the cave at depth, towards the end of a scuba dive. What an amazing environment to surface into. Beautiful, blue clear water, little fish, an echo of the waves and otherwise, silence. Incredibly peaceful.

Dont go if you are scared or have trouble swimming as the swim into the cave is a bit much for the occasional tourist, but once in, it is an amazing feature without comparison.

Blue Cave is just stunning. We had to swim about 0.5m under a cliff to get there just to be amazed by the cave and sun rays getting in through a hole at the top. Great spot for cliff diving and snorkelling as well. Check...More

Jump in a boat and cruise down to this little beauty. Just a quick duck dive under a ledge and pop up into a small cavern lit through nature’s window to different shades of blue. If you’re in Tanna, don’t miss out on seeing this....More

We are super strong swimmers and happened to go on a rough ocean day at high tide. If you are not comfortable in challenging conditions than make certain you are going on a calm/ low tide day. We could not see the “gap” so we...More

We went early in the morning and at low tide when water was calm - very important. Also the sun shines through the whole at the top early in the morning and is a must. When the sun moves it is not so spectacular. It...More

We stayed at Evergreen Resort from the 21st to the 24th of November 2017 and were told that the Blue Cave was "too dangerous" at that time and was closed - they did not specify when it would be accessible to visit again.

We booked our trip through the Whitegrass Resort. It was about $90 per person. We combined it with the snorkeling on turtle reef, which I believe was a bit extra.
