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.

It is really a different experience and a must see place. Visit when the season is (feb to sept) when large waves are there. You can try the fried fish offered by the local if you dont concern about the heigene.
