We visited the blowhole this morning, I was a bit concerned when our tuk tuk driver refused payment and came with us but I'm glad he stayed because we had no idea how to get back to the house we were staying at and he didn't try to rip us off. We passed one lady selling the fish and she... More

If you visit during the windy season you are sure to witness the marvelous sight of water shooting 15-20m through the blow hole. We went in Dec'2013 and watched the phenomenon 6-7 times within about 30 minutes. You have to... More

We asked the man at the ticket counter how it was and he advised that we wait about 20 minutes to see the spout. We waited patiently and were rewarded with some pretty photos of the exciting blow hole. Just be patient for the spout to build and you will see it. The entrance fee was LKR 250. On the... More

I d advise all tourist not to visit blowing hole in april time and find out what time is recommended to visit this place. This is a nature fenomen and it s worth to see 50 metres powerfull ocean water blowing from the cliffs that created nature hole inside.
