This is the best blowhole I have seen. The routine is to get some coconuts and throw one at a time Into the hole before the blast hits. You just need to watch out when the coconut returns from the sky that you don't get it landing on your head. You pay 5WST for entry but then when you get... More

The Alofa'aga Blowholes is one of the best examples of this natural phenomenon in the world -- and are rich in local legend. We stopped here during a day tour with a local guide, who presided over tossing coconut husks into one of the blow holes to spectacular effect (they launched some 60 meters into the air). For tourists complaining... More

The blow holes are good but it is too expensive. You can see it in about 15 minutes. We ( family of 4 in one car) was charged 20tala. The guy who took our money asked if we wanted to see the coconuts, we said yes. He didn't tell us that cost extra. On the way out he asked for... More

We really enjoyed this attraction. The blowholes are a definite must see when travelling to Savaii. We had the old man take us through and enjoyed how informative he was about the village and blowholes as an attraction.

The tide was obviously out at the time we visited however the locals still took our money and didn't say anything. The road to actually get to the blowholes is very rough and there is no clear signage. It's such a shame that this area hasn't been maintained; maintenance of the beach fales and clearing the rubbish would make this... More

Quite a long drive to get here and when you do you only need about 15 minutes to experience the blow hole. If you've not seen one before it would be pretty good but not really worth it if you have. Surrounding seascapes are beautiful and make the drive worthwhile. There is parking and basic toilets onsite.

You pay an entry fee of WST$5 before you can travel down the track. There is no sign posting so the first sign of a blowhole we saw we pulled over only to be told by a woman that is was another WST$10 to park there as it was her family land. The track went on further but we had... More

Unfortunately the swell wasn't great so the blowhole wasn't really working as well as it may but it was still a good experience. The only thing we didn't enjoy was being harassed for extra money from the old man that throws the coconut in the hole. We had already paid entry fees so he was just it on but being... More

The blowholes are quite a sight even after the ones I've seen in Tasmania. It was even better as I was the only visitor. But the sandroad is really bumpy and I was suprised that my car didn't break down on the way.
