Barn Owl's Hole

Natural Area, Blue Holes, Banks, and Reefs

One mile from the beach, heading north on the island, is Owl’s Hole; a beautiful inland blue hole. This hole received its name from barn owls, one of the two kinds of owls found on Grand Bahama Island. These owls mate and nest on the many ledges of the cave, sleep during the day, and being nocturnal, hunt at night.

Accessibility Notes

This site might be challenging for persons with mobility impairments and those in wheelchairs. It is only accessible by ATVs, 4x4 vehicles, or mountain bikes, and the trails are very narrow and small due to minimal foot traffic. It is recommended that you use one of the island's guide services to visit the site.

Eco-Friendly Notes

Naturally landscape of Caribbean Pines, great for bird watching.

Recreational Opportunities

This site is great for a hiking experience through a civic group or guided Eco-tour. It is also perfect for prearranged inland cave dives with one of the Certified Cavern Divers found on the island.
