Hummanaya is the only known blowhole in Sri Lanka and it may be the second largest blowhole in the world. 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.

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...
