Small blown old - must to see when you drive around the island - the weather was cool and the road is very busy

The park is in the process of being redone and 90% complete. The views from the overlook are wonderful and the beach area is clean and nice. The bathrooms are a little rough but usable. They are working on landscaping but overall it was a wonderful stop on a drive around the island.

The local scenery is great, but the area is under construction and you cannot access the parking areas. The road is very busy, so stopping to take a look is not recommended. We continued around the island. Don't plan on visiting this until early 2016.

After driving around to this spot, there was a sign up and a big fence across the car park saying closed from August for the next 5 months for renovation. The locals told us we could not visit. Also the blow hole look out was similarly closed as they rebuilt it.

When we went yesterday the car park was closed and they are renovating... It actually looked really dangerous like there was a land slide and boulders had recently fallen... I wouldn't recommend going at the moment. It looks like once it is finished it will be very accessible. The blow hole itself was pretty small but cool anyways

Nothing really special about this one on an average day. The hole itself is on the mountain side of the road so watch out when crossing to and from the blow hole. If you go during a raging storm then you will be soaked and probably badly bruised as you are swept around like a rag. There's a raging wind... More

They are currently renovating the tourist site & it looks like they are doing it well. Small blowhole but still worth stopping to have a look as you drive around the island.

Maybe it wasn't really working the day we went, cos it was pretty average. Nearby are some nice waterfalls, so if you do a tour from Papeete along the north coast, you see various monuments to captain cook and other explorers, and the tomb of the king. Tour Ames about 3 hours, just hire a taxi in the Main Street,... More

It may have been the water conditions at the time but the blow hole was hardly making any spray. You can see everything in less than 10 minutes.There are a few vendors by the parking lot selling souvenirs and food. We bought a bag of coconut cookies that were very good. When travelling clockwise around the island you cannot legally... More

I took my mom who was visiting to the hole. It's the one place that she remembers and asks to bring her back to. The area at the time was going through a facelift. A new tunnel was dug and opened up a few years ago. A local lady not far from the hole sells mape( steamed chestnuts) and fresh... More
