You can drive up to right where the blow holes are but be prepared to pay another 10 Tala for parking. I am pretty sure that 10 tala also buys you the 'coconut show' too though. Which consists of a lady throwing coconuts into a...More

The blowholes and lava rocks are beautiful to see. They only cost 5 Tala each person (which is great compared to lots of places). I think you can get there only with a rental car or in a tour. You do not need a really...More

Really quite stunning. We paid a local to throw some coconuts into the blowhole and it was quite spectacular to see them fired up 50-100m into the air (way higher than the water goes). You are not meant to go right down onto the lava...More

The blowholes are amazing and the vistas are beautiful. There is a lady who throws coconuts into the blowhole, which is hilarious - you will pay for the privilege of that - hahah Entrance is $5 WST.

First time I've been to any blowholes and was amazed by the power of the waves from them. I've seen pics of them in NZ where they are all fenced off for safety ect, not these ones where you can get as close as you...More

The blowholes were awesome. We only just arrived and a local appeared from no-where offering to throw coconuts into a blowhole which shoot out like a canon (just a few tala)

Amazing to see. The share power of the ocean is amazing. It is $5 tala entry per person, and once you go down the slow bumpy road (perhaps only do with a high access vehicle) you get charged $5 tala to park your vehicle. You...More

You can see what happens at the blowholes from the carpark. You don't have to go all the way up to them but to experience it walk closer.
