The Hole

The Hole is just that -- a hole in the ground on the island of Providenciales from which visitors are lowered down by rope to swim in the waters of Long Bay. This can be dangerous, so only the adventurous need apply.

The Hole measures 40 feet across and is 80 feet deep.


The Hole is located in Bringamosa, a neighborhood on Providenciales; it is to the south of Grace Bay.

To get to the famed Hole, drive down Leeward Highway and keep going straight when you hit the roundabout leading to Grace Bay. After another five minutes, take the turn for Long Bay Hills Highway to your right. Continue on the bumpy road for 10 more minutes then turn right onto Sea Sage Hill Road. After another five minutes of driving time, you will come to a sign pointing to the Hole on your left. Park near the sign and walk the rest of the way to the Hole.

Nearby Restaurants

Of course, one of the most enjoyable options while spending an afternoon exploring the area is eating food at a restaurant within traveling distance of the cave. Turks Kebab, which serves Greek food, is also the most convenient option for visitors of this cave. Also within a short distance, you will find options like The Pork Shack and Barefoot Cafe where you and your party might try out Caribbean dishes and experience the culture of Turks and Caicos.
