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.

Unlike some reviewers I thought this blow hole was far less impressive than others we have seen in other locales around the world. Yet, what I did like was the deep growling noise heard from the "dragon" which was on the other side of the...More

Nice place to break your trip. Would be best in rough seas, but quite noisy even in a little swell. Good toilets

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

Incredible lava tube extending out into the ocean allowing water and air to frequently blow up through the land mass. Sit in the splash zone ... if you dare! Gorgeous scenery which depicts all of the tropical bliss in one incredible location.

Currently being upgraded, clean toilets small car park, nice viewpoint and unlike other blowholes you can stand right by the exit and get sprayed by mist safe. We visited during a decent swell.
