I've seen better water holes in Texas. This one didnt stand out, and it is not the easiest to get to if you are an elderly person - it is also slimy on the concrete entering into the pool, so you need to be careful....More

This is one of those rare tourist spots that actually looks like the pictures you see on the internet. We were the only ones there and got a chance to swim as much as we wanted. Beautiful natural pool with some friendly fishies in it,...More

The Blue Hole is somewhat small, swimming hole surrounded by some lush vegetation. The water is cool and refreshing. Don't dive down as it is only about 12 feet deep. One of the people in our group hit their nose on the bottom.

We swung by the blue hole after doing the St. Herman's Cave Tubing adventure. Nice to take a cool dip in the water during a hot day.

Blue Hole is overly rated. It's a small swimming area with a lot of tourists. $6 entrance fee. We stayed very close - at Sleeping Giant Resort - but I felt sorry for a group, who paid a lot of money to travel from Hopkins...More

I hiked over from St. Hermans which was a nice little trail that took about 45 minutes. The water at Blue Hole is so pretty and inviting that you have to take a swim before you leave.
