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...

We were staying on the east end so most of our travels included passign the blow holes. They are located down about 30 steps and across some jagged coral. I was travelling with my 2 teenagers who were not impressed. They were even more upset when i wanted to take a photo of them and the sun was in their... More

At about $8 a gallon, don't make this a main trip . Have it as a stop to somewhere else. Pretty much will have a national lampoons vacation moment. Where they walk up to the grand canyon, nod a few times; then leave.

Really just somewhere you pull over and visit for five minutes for photos but quite dramatic if the sea has a reasonable swell coming in. Free to see. No facilities in the vicinity. We went on the way to Tukka which is a great restaurant at the east end of the island.

Lovely to see but it's not really an attraction. There is a hand painted sign on the side of the road with a small space to stop. There are stairs leading down to the blow holes. Once you have taken photos there isn't anything more to do.

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.
