In addition to the pool the Blue Hole National park, an easy stop-off on the Hummingbird Highway, features St. Hermans Cave, this Cave is within the boundaries of the reserve, and here lies a series of caves and underground rivers called the Caves System, which offers lengthy tube rides and hiking through the jungles. The cave entrance is easily visited; to continue into the cave you will definitely need your Guide.This is a perfect spot for birdwatching.
