It's ok....too much of a garbage hole

It's ok. The walk to the blow golem was more scenic than the bliwhole itself. People have used the blowhole as a garbage dump, so it's intended purpose is lost. Also, there is... read more

We visited this on our way back from Kataragama. About 10 min walk on uneven steps so watch out. We visited this in April but the best time to visit would. be May to August as rough seas will blow lot more water.

A must see. It is amazing to see the water spurt up like a fountain and to feel the spray on you. if you don't see the spray at first be patient wait for 15-20 minutes usually one will happen. carry caps the sun is really hot

This is a seasonal thing, only good when the sea is rough I'd say during May till October. This attraction is one of the rare things in the word made by mother nature! Good visit if you are in the area...

What can i say? It's not worth the 250 Rupees. You have to be very lucky to see the Blowhole in action.

That blowhole bust really get going in June for it to have the reputation it has, but in February, even after some unusually stormy days bringing big swells, it was maybe 3-6 feet in the air every 5 minutes or so. Cool enough I guess, but not worth the drive from Tangalle. Best combined with another trip--if it's on your... More

I think the best things in Sri Lanka are free. This one whilst it costs 250 rupees per person, is quite cheap. There isn't much to see, if you were driving by on your scooter it's an ok visit. But I wouldn't pay a tuk tuk driver to take you there. Just walk along the free beaches, the view is... More

This is a very interesting place, however it's subject to windy conditions. The more windy I think the better. We could only observe a couple of mini water blowing but it was still worth it. Never seen this before, so if you are around the area, do give it a shot!
