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.

Location

The Hole is located in Bringamosa, a neighborhood on Providenciales; it's 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.
