Boiling Hole is a blue hole that is located on Queen's Highway across the road from the Allen Chapel AME Church in Rock Sound. It's name is derived from the gas building up at the bottom and bubbling to the surface. It is small and the water is stagnant, therefore swimming in the hole is not recommended.

Located behind the boiling hole is a cave aka "The Cathedral" for those persons that love to explore. It is short and entered from the top; a wooden ladder is provided. The roots cascades down from the trees on top of the cave, and rays of light cast through the ceiling. On a sunny day, the view is breathtaking.

No flashlights are required for this cave.
