Seeing the raw power of mother nature in such a beautiful setting on such a beautiful day was absolute magic! You can sit for ages and watch the differing displays of the blowholes as the waves alternate in strength and size! Well worth the visit...More

This was a fabulous spot to stop and witness the sheer power of the water powering up through the holes. Could have spent much longer there just watching the water works! I tossed a coconut in and it came powering up - hundreds of feet...More

Wow what a cool thing to see! You need to stay there for at least 30 mins to see what it does as each wave is different. Could easily sit there for a few hours! Wear your raincoat!

really nice area to watch the blow holes, however, when we got there we paid $5 tala each and then the old coconut man got in the back of the car and made us drive to the blowholes, threw 5 coconuts in the blow hole...More

the blow holes are stunning to see. Take some coconut husks with you to throw into the blow holes and see it tossed into the air by the powerful force generated by the water. The only downside about the blow holes is that you need...More

I have been there twice and it is awesome to see the blowholes in action. If possible arrive at high tide to see the full force of the blowholes. The site is poorly marked and on a bumpy rough road but do not miss it.

Dramatic, stunning, beautiful. Hired a car and drove there, bumpy path in but worth it. Just $5WST pp, well worth it!

Had a great time with the family here. The 'coconut man' only charged 20 Tala for the show; so not too steep and well worth it. Would recommend using a vehicle with fair degree of ground clearance to get there though.

Well worth a visit! Stunning views. If you are approached by an old man and asked if you want him to throw coconuts in the blow hole, ensure to negotiate the price first!

Hi top plan, for some reason your question did flag up to me and I have only noticed it 3 weeks later. Not sure if it is still valid after all this time but if you haven't been yet then the last bit of walking could be a... More
