“Check first...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

It's about a 20 min walk down to the blowholes, and a STEEP walk back, so check with those coming back up to see if the blow holes are doing there thing...

“Could have been better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Was told by locals that the blowholes were a must see so we travelled out to see them only to find out the machinery operating the blowholes was not working on the day we were there. This should have been signposted as it would have saved us a walk there. We are in our 80's so for us it is a long walk.

“sometihng cool to see in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Although a bit of a treck down there but im 6 month preganant and still made it back in one piece just had to stop for a breath couple of times.
Bit cold and windy and a little dangerous so would closely supervise kids.

“Long walk with an amazing view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

It's quite a walk downhill and uphill and the scenery was so amazing. Didn't get to see the sprouting water from the blowhole. The sound of the blowhole is roaring loud. Wonderful experience.
