After our tuk tuk driver suggested this a few times, we decided to stop in there. Drove through a very dodgy-feeling neighbourhood which was super wet and muddy after the overnight rain. This area seriously reeked of dead dog and garbage. The dogs were in fact some of the worst I'd seen in Sri Lanka. We parked the tuk tuk... More

It was raining as we parked which made the ground quite muddy and not great in open toe sandals (note to women!!!) but it was a very cheap entry fee. A short 5 minute walk through barrow streets selling all sorts of bits and pieces (including drying fish!!!!). The blowhole itself is impressive- water spouting up quote high and beautiful... More

Natural geyser created by the pressure of sea water through narrowo hole. During weekends and public holidays it's a bit overcrowded.

You pay 250 rupee per person and have to climb quite a bit to get here. What we saw was water from the sea hitting the rocks and blowing through the hole about one meter high. In my opinion it makes no sense at all to go here, unless it is really stormy and you might see the water blowing... More

I would have scored this place higher if it we didn't have to pay "Foreigners fee" Rs250. We found we got the same treatment all over Sri Lanka. Rude is all I can say. We were very lucky with the weather by the sounds of it. Got some great pictures but I wouldn't have been too upset if I hadn't... More

We visited in the end of January. We did not see anything happening which of course was a little bit disappointing for us. There is quite a long walk from the parking place with some steps and uphill. The area itself is nice and there is a really nice beach. Of course the view around the blowhole is really good... More
