This is a nice quick stop. Spent about 15 minutes just enjoying the view and the waves. There was one big blow hole where I was - it was so cool!

Blink and you might miss the marker for the blow hole. I have been to La Bufadora in Mexico so this one was a little disappointing. Still the scenery is beautiful so not a total loss.

This is great sight when the sea conditions are right. Otherwise a bit of a let down. It was quiet when we stopped by so not the photo opportunity I have previously had. However a local man who called himself Obama (there is a look of Barack about him) gave us an interesting look at the fossils and other things... More

You could miss the blow holes if you are driving by too fast. It's hit or miss on what you'll see, depending on the tides. Our trip 2 years ago, they were pretty amazing. This time, we just didn't time it right- but still cool and worth the price of admission.

These are still working but are best when the seas are a bit rough. You can pass away half hour or so but please watch your step the rocks can be a little sharp. Enjoy.

There was no wind the day we visited the blow holes, so it wasn't as impressing as I had hoped for. The view was still beautiful and I'm glad we went. It helped that they are close to the botanical garden, so if you are going that way, definitely check them out.

Always a fun stop when the seas are a bit rough and from the right directions. Great fun to try to takes photos just as the water reaches it's peak!

This is on the main road on the East End. This is a great photo oppurtunity with the blue water crashing behind you.

I guess we went a wrong time. good view but not much activity in the blow holes. The tide was low so not much water went up. Would love to see it in full force

It's a hole in the rock and the day we were there the water would shoot up 20 feet or so on some waves. We had fun getting wet but dont expect a geyser. You just pull off the road and down some steps. If you're touring the island anyway it's worth a stop but not a special trip (IMHO).
