Ocean Hole

 25 Thumbs Up! Give your thumbs up.

Ocean Hole is a large inland salt water lake. It is referred to as a bottomless blue hole, has a rich Eco-system, and is home to lots of tropical fish waiting to show off how well they can jump for bits of bread. Known to be connected to the Atlantic Ocean, this body of water rises and recedes with the oceanic tides.

The Ocean Hole Park which adjoins the blue hole  was designated as a protected area in 1970 and has undergone various forms of infrastructure, which now surrounds the landmark, including a miniature stone wall and beautification of the area with coconut and sea grape trees.
