The Shrimp Hole, Long Island, Bahamas

Just past Gray’s Settlement heading north towards The Bight lies an old dilapidated Anglican church on your right, this is how you know you’re in the right place to get to The Shrimp Hole. There is a path in the bushes behind the church leading to The Shrimp Hole. The path is winding and a bit rocky at times, but once you reach your destination it will be worth the walk.

The Shrimp hole is an inland blue hole shaded by trees surrounding the opening and filled with shrimp and tiny crabs. The shrimp are the main attraction here. Their bright red bodies stand out against the rocks and debris filling the hole. I found it mesmerizing watching them pick little bits of algae off of the rocks. The water is refreshingly chilled and is the perfect repose after the walk through the bushes in the blazing sun. If you swim into the cavern, the holes above allow light to shine through and create beautiful displays in the water below.

Around the top edge, there are a few spots you can jump from if you’re brave enough. This is a great spot to experience something a bit unusual but also interesting and fun. Have you been to The Shrimp Hole before? Did you jump in? Let me know in the comments.
