Calm and spectacular place, but not a must see... do not go in the middle of the day! No drinking water, no food, no toilette around!

Interesting, but not something that you cannot miss. You need to walk up on a slopy path through a fishing village with a lot of dried fish, pineapple stands and very kind locals selling. The trip upwards is worth just as much as the blowhole itself. Don't stand on lowest level if you are afraid of getting soaking wet !!:)

We needed to wait 15 minutes for a real blow. But it was worth waiting - the photos are spectacular.

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....
