Our guides warned us that the ocean was somewhat calm. People that we crossed leaving said they saw nothing. Since we were there we took a change. Spent about 30 minutes and saw a few bursts but nothing spectacular.

The steps are not great but I paid 250 rupees as a foreigner so it was well worth this and the ocean is beautiful. Great view. You can buy food along the way as in snacks and ice cream...

this is waste of time, but if you are anyhow close to this 'attraction' then go. if was suggested by our driver and we accepted - before entering we had a very nice and fresh juice at the shop - this was maybe the best with this attraction.

It is just a frustration. Watch you tube film and decide all the way come and climb up. When you park people ask money. You don't get ticket but pay 250 rupees... Money collected I suppose goes with the man. If a stormy weather maybe some spectacular scenery....

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.
