As blowholes go this is a pretty average one, though it might be better with a full see running. It's lovely location with good views and has a couple of gift shops and clean toilets. It's one of the island tour spots, but certainly doesn't...More

The blowhole was an interesting stop as part of a complete tour. Would not make a special trip just for this. What made it better was watching the surfers on the beach below in the large waves. Not spectacular but an interesting formation of lava...More

We were really impressed with the viewing area. It was well groomed and simply lovely. The sound and force of the water was incredible. Don’t miss the Three water falls near by.

When I was there work was going on to make the area safe from falling rocks, so not all areas were open. The areas that were open were interesting. I am interested in wildlife and saw the Gobis (rock hopping fish)9, rock crabs and birds....More
