A nice spot to stop and watch the waves. I could sit and watch them for a long time. the blow holes were quite a distance from where you can park and you couldn't walk closer but if you drove up the road there is a house being remodeled and we parked there one time. The waves and color of... More

If you are driving around the East End of the island, this is definitely a place to stop for a picture or video. We were there in the afternoon and got a good sampling of the blow holes. You get quite a good shot with some of the bigger waves. Worth a 10 or 15 minute stop. As per a... More

Agreed, you have to go to the blowhole on a day with good waves or it's useless. There is a good sign on the inland side so it's hard to miss if you're looking for that. Alan is there in the morning, and he is an outstanding guide to the area. Showed us the fossils in the volcanic rock, picked... More

The weather was calm the day we visited the site, so things were far from spectacular. But every sight from the Caymans was warm and inviting!

This attraction is basically just a part of the beach where waves crash against the rocky shore and sometimes make a loud whooshing sound. It’s true that you may miss it if you’re not paying attention to road signs. We stopped by this place because we were driving around the island in our rental car to just explore and made... More

Like others have mentioned, Blow Holes is out of the way BUT it is worth seeing. It is one of my favorite stops on island and I always make it a point to go to Blow Holes when I'm on island. Go on a day when the water is "choppy" to get the best experience and wear good walking shoes... More

This is pretty out of the way. If you are on your way to some place else, yes stop here for a photo. Don't just go on a long drive for just this. Like many off the beaten path places on Cayman, you have to really look.

Stopped by while driving around the East End of GC. You do need to look for the small sign and usually there may be a car of two parked on the side of the road. These blow holes are conveniently located off the road, with a quick/easy walk and you may see some good blasts. If you have seen blow... More

Not a well-labeled spot, but perhaps that is why I appreciated it. Save this activity for a windy day so you get the most blow for your hole. Ha! It is a nice site to see and the rocks are fun to walk out on. Just go prepared to possibly get wet. Don't take your camera too close if it... More

Just like a reviewer mentioned before this place is poorly marked although it's not easy to miss if you're looking for the right thing. If you're renting a car and want to explore the island's eastern districts visit it on your way. You'll have a great view and, depending on sea conditions, you'll be able to get some good waves...
