Checking out the blow holes
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Payed 5 tala each drove down a rough road and found the holes. Best to come here high tide. The black lava was very hot. Better to come later in the day

I’ve been to the blow holes a few times. It’s always fun to go there with people who haven’t been before. There was a lovely old man who would tell you about the blow holes and he would stand very close to the big hole , get his timing right and throw a coconut down the holes just before the wave came and it would blow the coconut out. He has since passed away. A lovely Woman has taken on his job and she is great. Very friendly . It’s a beautiful place too. Big waves and lava rock. I would recommend it.

We were the only ones there with a local lady. She talked of the area and the people, then showed us a number of the blowholes. Though it was high tide the weather was rather calm (Heh not complaining) but we only managed a couple of popo to fly.

A bit of excitement awaits you as you are not sure which blowhole is going to spurt next and they are very strong jets. Stay a good 15 metres from each one for safety's sake. Our tour included this site, but it is good value. A large and highly scenic location and a must if you visit Savai'i.

The blowholes are definitely worth the stop on a trip to Savaii. A beautiful sight and an easy stop along a trip around the island.

Well worth a visit, but stay well back from wet areas etc.
What did put a bit of a dampener on this one, was some quite serious confusion about costs and where we we could and couldn’t go. As we were driving in, we were met with a van load of about eight people driving out. They were furious at having being charged 5 Tala (per person) by the man at the top of the road way, then driving further down the roadway and being told it was a further 10 Tala (per person) to drive through the gateway and park to see the blowholes. Consequently, they left.

We discussed this with the man at the top and paid me a five Tala each. He explained that if you drove and parked to the left ahead of the gateway we would not be charged anything further, but that if we went through the gateway that was privately owned land and we would be charged. So we did manage to park on the left, ahead of the gateway, and slightly off-road and see the blowholes from there, which was fine.

Back at our resort that evening however, we spoke to some other people who went on the same day, and they said they were only charged 10 tala for the entire car, and once through the gate could go a bit further on and then got to the bottom where the woman was throwing coconuts over the blowhole etc, and said it was great.

Worth the slow drive down private road, 5 tala for admission but worth it. Something you don't see every day.

Blowholes

We were charged $5 tala per person (including the little kids) - there was no one on site when we got to the blowholes, we just had lunch there and sat and watched the water.
