We walked down the beachside to the blow hole. The guide from another group was bemoaning the fact we had just missed seeing the blowhole in action, then it blew for us. He was jumping up and down with excitement.

The area along the beach with the high rocks, overlook, and cave is a beautiful place to visit. The only thing is if the sea is not at high tide, you don't get the blowing rocks effect. Take water with you on a hot day.

Visited the Marneef Cave last week. The place is awesome for outing during late evening as I experienced. We actually went late night, sound of sea shores is so soothing and relaxing. Had a God time there while grilling and enjoyed a lot with friends.
