Check before you go, to make sure that the Blowholes will be blowing, as there are a lot of steps (76) to get to them. You see nothing other than the wonderful coastline, if the sea is too calm!

Worth a stop off but remember you need a bit of ocean swell for them to be operating to maximum effect A sound shoe rather than a visual display

This is fabulous spot to visit, but be prepared for a workout!! The noise from the Blowhole is amazing and the pressure when it blows...... Beautiful spot... a must go see.

800 metres and 78 steps .. easy you might say, but the sign doesn't tell you it's all down hill to the blowholes. Which means it's all uphill back to the car park . Having said that, it was definitely worth it - though not for the unfit or handicapped

If you time this right, the noise of the blowhole is fantastic and great fun! It is quite a steep walk down and back so not suitable for people who might struggle with a steep walk back, although plenty of places and seats to stop if needed. Definitely worth a visit!

Unfortunately weren't blowing much in the day we were there but impressive views and sounds. Longish walk but worth it.

Longish walk (for some) our and down across beautiful sea vistas, about a km to the blow holes and surrounding rocky shelf. The sea is surging all round so even if the blowholes are not that active the beaches below will be. Worth the trip provided you can handle mild paths.
