The Healing Hole is located in the mangrove swamps and accessible by boat only.

It is located in Bonefish Creek where you can catch bonefish by the thousands.

This area provides an opportunity to catch bonefish in abundance. If you enjoy kayaking, take a double kayak out to the mangroves with someone special. Also, if you have an illness or sickness that you want cured take a dive in the Healing Hole, refreshing to the body, mind and soul.
