You will think there are ancient people haunting the spot with the noise created from this geological treat! We sat and watched both blow holes- the one inside and closest to the road and the other being on the beach side. Just cool to watch along with the waves. The black sand is impressive as well. Picnic area and restrooms... More

The waves were good and the blowhole was working but it was underwhelming. A crevasse in the rocks blew some damp air out every few minutes but we all thought the coach trip from Papeete was not worth the effort.

Another site that is easily accessed right off the main road. This one is kind of cool. There are holes in the volcanic shoreline that, when rushed by the incoming waves, generate of soft – very loud whoosh, apparently similar to a whale’s blowhole. There is a large one right by the path you walk up and it just might... More

Tracey (of Unique Tahiti Tours) took us to this unexpected site covered with black volcanic rocks (reminding me of the island's origins) with a silver beach tucked in. But the blowhole was the exciting feature: a periodic explosion of surf from an opening in the rocks.

Absolutely a curious spot that I think everyone should check it out and experience the funny and strong wind coming out from a tiny hole.

We've seen some great blow holes in NZ and Australia but this wasn't as big. Still, an interesting place to stop while touring Tahiti,and it's practically on the road...

Part of my round Tahiti tour. It is a blowhole located on the northern part of the island. Scenery is lovely.

For something that is just a little drive-by stop, our family got a big kick out of the blow hole. Alma sat in front of the tube where the noise comes out and laughed and laughed! The spout out the other side was just as fun to watch--very random as the ocean is.
