Swim at Blue Hole in Santa Rosa

Added by Will Myhan

This is the perfect stop while traveling on I-40. Not only is it a beautiful place to see, but also a wicked place to swim!

The Blue Hole is super easy and quick to get to off of I-40. You will need to bring $5 for the vehicle fee. Once you park it is about a 2-3 minute walk to the swimming hole. You can also snorkel and scuba dive there also. Call ahead for details on this. They have bathrooms for changing. The water was around 60 degrees. Be prepared for this if you are wanting to jump in. It's totally worth it! Don't miss out on this cool adventure right off the interstate!

Beautiful Clear Blue Water

Fun for cliff jumping!

Worth It

Water is freezing cold so be prepared. Very beautiful place.

You won't regret going here. The $5 entrance fee is well worth the fun you'll have hanging out here!
