Bit of a let down

It is a very long walk to the Blowhole not good for young children or people who can not walk far. It is up hill on the way back too. Look it is very pretty once you get there... read more

A long steep walk and because of calm seas no visible blowing. If weather stormy and waves high this may be worth doing otherwise give it a miss

I've come to the Blowholes many times, but there are two lesser known side attractions at the Blowholes that most people don't seem to know about, so I'll let you in on two local secrets: 1. The secret beach. Once you get to the Blowholes, just keep following the rocks around the coast, until you come to a narrow boardwalk... More

This one is a decent walk downhill towards blowholes and uphill on way back. Not for people who don't like steps and going uphill. It wasn't blowing the day we visited.

a must .. a very unique place. as you walk slowly through the rock, you can hear the ocean smashing the rock, walking a slope of 85 degree and a miss means you will be washed away from Indian Ocean to Antartica You actually have to walk down a steep rock.. so prepare to have a good shoe and wind...

We had a long walk on the hot sun. It was very windy n the Sands were blowing to our ears, nose, eyes - everywhere but we walked expecting to see a blow. Unfortunately there was no blowings that day :( Keep your expectations low & enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Whilst I enjoyed the walk to the blowholes my husband did not enjoy it at all. He found the walk too long in the hot weather. I suspect others would say the same - particularly if you have children with you. I am not sure about the distance but there is quite a hill on the way back that gives... More

It's a good walk from the car park down to the blow holes and there is no guarantee that you will see the blow holes in action, they were not active when we visited. Nevertheless a great stretch of coastline which is worth visiting.
